Teach Ag in Nevada
Why Teach Ag?
Teaching agriculture is unlike teaching any other subject. It makes a difference in students’ lives and is one of the few subjects that connects directly to an industry.
Agriculture classes are the application of core subjects like math, science, language arts and social sciences. Agriculture classrooms are in a lab, at a landscaping site, in the greenhouse, on a school farm or in the shop. There are no boundaries to the learning environments agriculture teachers can explore.
Nevada’s food and agriculture industry is diverse and expanding. More and more students are needed to fill all of the jobs that the industry has to offer. To do that, we need great agriculture teachers who are willing to make the difference in students’ lives!
