Ag Teacher Testimonials
See why these professionals chose a career in Agricultural Education!
“ I enjoy seeing the growth of students from the time they enter school until they graduate. I enjoy challenging them with rigorous curriculum and concepts they don't think they will understand, only to see them master them as we work through the curriculum. Teaching agriculture involves such a variety of concepts that I look forward to going to work because I am excited about working on our class projects. Ag teachers typically have a lot of input into the local curriculum so it is easy to build classes that fit with your passion and interest.” -Rich McCabe Unity Tolono
"Being an Ag teacher isn't just a job; it's a way of life. It's demanding and rewarding, diverse and exciting, progressive and professional. We are able to make an impact in students' lives in lasting ways and truly make a difference in developing premier leadership, personal growth, and career success for those lucky enough to be part of our programs. Teaching is rewarding, but teaching Ag is downright life-changing for everyone involved." -Corine Biswell, West Prairie HS
