It's National Teacher Appreciation Week!
Posted by Jennifer Smith on 7th May 2019
Beginning on May 6-10, 2019, we come together to celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week. This week, Deerbusters would like to take a moment to honor agriculture teachers. Here's why.
Why become an agriculture teacher?
Agriculture teachers work in many different environments whether in traditional classrooms or out in the field (demonstration gardens/demo farms). They teach students ranging from two-years-old up to college age. They teach skills necessary for human development (patience, respect, team work) and food production management. In addition, they discipline students in patience, dedication and hard work.
Why teach agriculture?
Agriculture classes should be required for all ages. Kids need to learn that our foods do not directly come from the grocery store; but instead, come from the ground. More than that, kids need to realize the importance of agriculture. They need to see that with an estimated 9 billion people on the planet by 2050, that's a lot of mouths to feed. They need to learn the importance of pollinating insects and plants; and they need to learn the different types of careers in agriculture that they can partake in such as agribusiness and animal husbandry.
This 2019 Teacher Appreciation Week, Deerbusters would like to offer discounted deer fence supplies to all teachers. Call Deerbusters to learn more: 888-422-3337.
