About the NAAE Teach Ag Campaign      

NAAE National #TeachAg Campaign Mission:
To raise awareness of the need to recruit and retain high quality and diverse agriculture teachers, encourage others to consider a career teaching agriculture and celebrate the positive contributions that agriculture teachers make in our schools and communities.
