#psuaged16, Olivia Murphy-Sweet- National Teach Ag Ambassador!

Olivia Murphy-Sweet (@OSweetMurph), a 2016 student teacher, was chosen to represent the National Teach Ag Campaign as a 2014 National Teach Ag. Ambassador. Through an application and phone interview process, Olivia was selected to be one of 12 Ambassadors across the nation.

Olivia will participate in numerous events throughout the year spreading awareness about the shortage of agriculture educators across the nation. During the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Kentucky, Olivia worked at the National Teach Ag booth interacting with the many FFA members, advisors, parents and others.
 "It was awesome to work with 12 outstanding individuals from nine different states. I loved spreading the word about Agriculture Education and making an impact!"

Olivia's greatest takeaway from her experience with the National Teach Ag Campaign so far, is that she has had the chance to meet teachers all across the country that are willing to share and help you with anything. She said "after meeting the other ambassadors and many Ag teachers, their enthusiasm and passion for the program re-lit my spark and excitement to teach! I cannot wait to work with these ambassadors throughout the year!"

Olivia is excited to take the skills she learns through this experience to her student teaching next year! Her position as a National Teach Ag Ambassador requires her to teach lessons to students, attend important events all year and be one of the faces for the National Teach Ag Campaign. All of these will impact what she can bring to her future career in a different and new perspective!
