#TeachAg! Banquet: Special Guest Speaker coming to PSU! Tara Berescik, 2013-14 ACTE Teacher of Year

Tara Berescik
It is that time of year again where the birds are chirping, the sun is out, and banquet season is among us! For most FFA chapters, there is a banquet once a year to recognize student and chapter success. Students in the Agriculture Education major took it upon themselves to hold a banquet to recognize our student teachers, clubs, and our college success.

The banquet has been in the planning process for a while and we are proud to say that there are a ton of new and exciting things that will be happening! For starters, we all know that the student teachers get an awesome gift, there will be a photo booth with tons of props that people can use in the pictures, as well as a special guest speaker that will be coming to give a speech! You may have heard of her as the ACTE Teacher of the Year or a recipient for the NAAE Teacher mentor award, but she is one of the finest teachers in the business! Tara Berescik, Tri-Valley Central School teacher in New York, is coming to this year’s banquet!

Tara has been teaching agriculture for 11 years and has been an influence on many people’s lives. Every person that she meets she always makes sure to leave a lasting impression. After talking to Tara more, she told me how excited she is to come to the banquet! “I'm excited to get to see Penn State since I have never been there before and I have lots of Ag Teacher friends who have graduated from the school and say wonderful things,” she explained. Her presence at the banquet will be one to remember!

If you would like to come to the banquet, you must RSVP by April 14th! The banquet will be held on the April 29th at the Mount Nittany Middle School. If you have any problems or questions, feel free to contact Deanna Miller at, dwm5353@psu.edu.
