This year, my oldest daughter became a freshman in high school and to my delight is taking ag classes has joined FFA, even though she has no intentions at this time of pursuing a career in agriculture. When I asked her why she chose to do this, her reply was that she had heard a lot of good things about the teacher and wanted to take her class. This underscores to me the importance of good ag teachers in our schools, because as our farming population continues to decline and our kids become increasingly out of touch with farming, it is the ag teachers who are the ones to expose kids to agriculture.
So, thank you to those who teach ag to our children and happy National Teach Ag day!
