YOUR TEXAS AGRICULTURE MINUTE
Teachers bring agriculture to life
By Gene Hall
Curious students fill the classroom, and a passionate teacher inspires.
In Texas, about 2,000 agricultural science teachers empower more than 170,000 students to be their best in life, leadership and anything they set their mind to.
But even teachers who aren’t certified to teach agricultural science still incorporate agricultural concepts into their classrooms.
We see it with past recipients of Texas Farm Bureau’s Ag in the Classroom Outstanding Teacher Award, which recognizes teachers who go above and beyond to bring agriculture to life in their science, reading, math and history classes.
Our future depends on our youth. And they’re in classrooms today, developing the skills they need to grow Texas.
I salute ag teachers and all teachers during this Teacher Appreciation Week. But also every day of the year—in school or during summer—when they’re hard at work molding the future of agriculture and Texas.
The preceding commentary is brought to you by Texas Farm Bureau, the “Voice of Texas Agriculture.” Called “Your Texas Agriculture Minute,” TFB will issue thought-provoking editorials each week—via print and audio—to spark understanding of agriculture in the Lone Star State and its impact on each and every Texan.
You may read this week’s editorial above or listen to the audio version.
