Core Values of @TeachAgPSU

Our inspirational task is diligently focus on cultivating, inspiring, coaching, developing and mentoring generations of IMPACTFUL agriscience teachers.

At a recent @TeachAGPSU Purpose Session when exploring our "WHY" [See Video Below], our agricultural teacher education faculty (Dr. John Ewing, @jce122; Dr. Kevin Curry, @KevinWCurry; Dr. Laura Rice, @LauraSankeyRice; and Dr. Daniel Foster, @FosterDanielD) articulated the Vision, Mission and top 10 core values of the @TeachAgPSU Agricultural Teacher Preparation Program. 


With a team effort (like our great students who share the @TeachAgPSU Family Creed here), we are confident that we be a part of the solution for schools and communities across the world.


To develop digitally-literate, globally minded 21st century positive agents of change for agricultural education.


@TeachAgPSU develops agriscience teachers who are prepared to teach where learners are in need.
