"What If I Know Nothing About Agriculture?  Can I Still Use It In My Classroom?"

"I grew up in Kansas.  I was surrounded by farms and animals my whole life, but when I started working in a charter school that mainly focused on agriculture - I was absolutely clueless.  In this post I will be discussing how important it is to teach your kids about Ag, and how I started!"                                link to blog

2017 Teacher of The Year - Consider Applying!

NHAITC knows how hard teachers work for their students. This is a chance to recognize an outstanding New Hampshire elementary or secondary school teacher, who uses agricultural education materials and/or activities in the classroom to teach core subjects.  Last year, Mike Smith from Mascenic Regional High School was recognized for integrating student horticulture projects into the district's food classes and in landscaping the school grounds.  

The winning application(s) will be recognized in the spring and submitted to National Agriculture in the Classroom to be considered for national recognition.  Applications are due November 15, 2016.
