Agricultural Education-A Universal Language

Today was our second day of interacting with SNU students and our first opportunity to present the structure of school based agricultural education in the US. Myself, Doug, Matt, Britney, and Sarah gave a presentation of the Three Circle Model and how we use agricultural education to teach high school and middle school students the skills they need for future success. What an incredible experience! Being able to have comprehensive conversations with students about a topic we both had interest in seemed to break down the previous communication barrier. The conversation and knowledge was floating like never before!
It truly in breathtaking to see the impact agricultural education can have on students who live across the world from one another. It leaves me thinking, how could other nations be influenced with school based agricultural education? These are the questions that make me want to make a difference as an ag teacher!
I think its easy to say this has been one of the most informative and engaging days of the trip, and I cant wait to see what else is in store!
