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!"
