Greetings Georgia Ag Teachers,
After attending the NAAE Conference in St. Louis this past year, I was overwhelmed by the knowledge and ideas that I was able to bring home to use in my own classroom. And might I add, the freebies that were offered at the ACTE career show were great. I have enough pens to last me an entire semester! It was also absolutely amazing to leave St. Louis with a deeper appreciation towards Georgia Agriculture. After hearing many stories of the struggles and battles that Agricultural Educators around the United States must endure, the NAAE Conference was a great reminder of how blessed I am to teach in Georgia.
With this in mind, I am proud to say that the 2012 NAAE Conference will be held in Atlanta. Please take part in this amazing opportunity that doesn’t come around too often. Take advantage of the Early Bird Registration that ends July 13th. It is definitely well worth the time and effort to attend this conference for you will get to meet some of the best agricultural educators from around the United States, just as our students do at National FFA Convention.
I challenge each of you to attend this conference to support the NAAE and show the other states some “southern hospitality”.
I challenge you to invite your local CTAE directors, supervisor, coordinators, Principals, and superintendents to the NAAE Conference, at least for one day, to reiterate importance of Agricultural Education and FFA.
Are you up for the challenge?
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or Daryl Behel, NAAE Region V Vice President.
Much FFA love,
GVATA President Elect
