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