DeWitt County teachers who are looking to get their hands dirty, have fun and earn professional development credit this summer are encouraged to apply today for Texas Farm Bureau’s Summer Agricultural Institute (SAI).
“SAI is an excellent opportunity for teachers to learn more about agriculture, how food and fiber moves from the farm to our homes and how they can incorporate all of that into their everyday lesson plans,” Allan Hartman, DeWitt County Farm Bureau president, said.
The three-day workshop includes field trips, tours, classroom materials and more.
“It’s more than just sitting in a classroom. There’s hands-on learning and activities,” Hartman said. “Teachers who have attended loved the workshop and the valuable resources they bring back to their schools. I encourage anyone who is interested to apply.”
