Welcome to Teach AG Georgia!

Introduction

Teach AG Georgia helps you find the path to becoming an agriculture teacher.

Do you enjoy working with young people to create a better future for Georgia and American agriculture? Do you love working outdoors with youth, plants, animals, and natural resources? Then a career teaching agriculture may be for you!

Agriculture teachers have exciting careers working with middle and high school students teaching agriculture. Most agriculture teachers instruct classes in animal science, plant science, horticulture, forestry, natural resources, and mechanics. Beyond the classroom agriculture teachers work with students on the completion of a supervised agriculture experience (SAE) projects and advise the local FFA chapter.

The average starting salary for agriculture teachers in Georgia is $44,000 and there are more job openings than qualified candidates.

National Teach Ag Day 2015 will be celebrated September 24, 2015.
