What you like most about being an Agriculture Teacher? Interacting with students after school and on our team events where a lot of bonding takes place. These activities allow me the opportunity to really get to know the students on a more personal level. The time spent with the students discussing agriculture, education, leadership and life in general is the biggest perk of this job!
