New Professionals Institute
The New Professionals Institute in Agricultural Education emphasizes topics critical for the growth and development of competent and confident first, second and third year teachers of agriculture. The purpose of the Institute is to provide early career agricultural teachers with the necessary skills to help them fulfill their roles as classroom teachers, FFA and SAE advisors, program managers, and mentors to students and other teachers. Early career teachers are introduced to a support network of exceptional agriculture teachers, teacher educators, state staff and industry leaders for follow-up assistance. The Institute also provides a forum for interacting with other early career teachers statewide.
