As an agricultural educator, simply telling the story of what you do every day is great advocacy. You are making lives better, giving students the knowledge and skills they need to succeed, and helping unite and strengthen your community.
That’s why it’s essential to advocate. Tell your ag ed story. Make sure the world knows just how important agricultural education is to your students and your community. You’re a teacher — teach your community, state and national leaders the importance of agricultural education!
There are three simple steps you can take to become an even stronger voice for agricultural education: becoming educated, building relationships, and taking action.
