Teacher of Teachers

 Recognizing that the future of Agricultural Education depends upon the dedicated men and women entering the profession, and being aware that students are greatly influenced by the counsel and example of their teachers of agricultural education, the CATA and Teach Ag California are proud to recognize the following 72 Teacher of Teachers.  The award covers a five year period and is based on the number of nominations the CATA member receives during the five year period of time. The student teachers from the five universities have two nominations each to acknowledge the most influential person that encouraged them to enter the agriculture teaching profession.
