Agriculture is a thriving industry. From companies providing input supplies to the fast-paced distribution and retail food industry, the demand for entry-level workers is strong. Providing high quality entry level workers begins in the classroom. Those classrooms need quality teachers. Whether your career goals lie in the classroom or elsewhere, consider agricultural education.
There is a national shortage of agricultural educators at the secondary level, according to the National Association of Agricultural Educators. It is estimated there will be hundreds of unfilled positions across the United States this year, simply because not enough students are choosing to be agricultural educators.
