Much to celebrate!

Posted by Parker Bane Aug 29, 2019

I hope that this message finds you doing well.  Most of us are back in the swing of a new school year, and if that weren't enough cause for celebration, our members have a lot of good news!  First, make sure you check out the list of NAAE Award Winners!  It is humbling to see our colleagues recognized for the great work that they are doing.  This group of winners is truly outstanding, and I'm glad that they will get their time in the spotlight in Anaheim.  

 

We all know that teaching can be an emotionally challenging profession, but creating a culture of celebration can shift our mindset to the positive.  I love the opportunity to recognize students for outstanding achievements, and they appreciate being recognized, too.  Just yesterday, I had the chance to see a student turn out a great project in the mechanics lab.  I made sure to point it out.  

 

We need to point out what our colleagues are doing well, too!  Of course, we have the NAAE Awards program, but we also have great cohorts of professional development and coming up soon, the National Teach Ag Day Celebration.  Thursday, September 19th is a great day to celebrate the profession.  Personally, I love to learn, and I like to take a little time to share my passion for learning with my students on Teach Ag Day.  Tune in to the live celebration from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EDT!

 

We would like to welcome Sabrina Shaver and Olivia Thomas to the staff as Communications and Marketing Specialists.  Ashley Hood will also be returning to us on September 3rd as the Membership Coordinator.  Our staff has been busy training and preparing for many events this fall, including the NAAE Conference in Anaheim.  

 

Best wishes as you start the school year!  Take some time to celebrate!

Each year, the NAAE has the opportunity to recognize individuals and organizations who have made an impact on agricultural education across the country. These people go above and beyond standard support as they donate time, money and experiences to the agriculture students in their communities.

 

For many communities and classrooms, agricultural resources and experiences are not always plentiful, but through the dedication seen by these award winners, agricultural education has a bright future both in and out of the classroom. From the organization of events to highlight future agriculture teachers, to participating in research for the good of agriculture education and improving the connection with school administrators, the 2018 Outstanding Cooperation Award Winners certainly embody the premier leadership and career success that is taught to agriculture students across the country. 

 

Without the support and cooperation of individuals and organizations like them, agricultural education would not be where it is today. Once again, congratulations to the 2018 Outstanding Cooperation award winners.
