The Ag Teacher's Spouse

They are the people behind the scenes. The ones who can recite the FFA Motto, who treat the FFA kids like their own, and who are always helping where they can. I'm talking about the ag teacher's spouse. We are very thankful for the agricultural educator's spouses for all they do. 

Being a Helping Hand

Thank you for volunteering and always lending a helping hand. From helping at livestock shows to decorating for banquets you are always happy to help wherever it is needed. By now you probably know the FFA Creed by heart and aren't afraid to show up to events dressed up in blue and gold. You probably have woke up early on your day off and rushed to the school after work to help get the classroom ready for an event. You have listened to countless speeches, helped haul livestock, worked on grants, and even brought snacks for the class. You aren't afraid to get your hands dirty and are always doing your part to make a difference in our lives. Thank you for all of your time and effort in helping the FFA. 

Being a Second Parent

Thank you for chaperoning events and acting as a mom or dad away from home. You are always there to lend an ear to problems, crack a few jokes and aren't afraid to give us a few motivational talks when life isn't going the way we think it should. Thank you for showing up to events not related to FFA. Football games, band performances, and so much more. Thank you for being our biggest fan and for constantly reminding us to be the best we can be. Thank you for keeping us in line and being one of our biggest supporters. 

Holding Down the Fort

In FFA there are countless competitions for students to be involved in. As an ag teachers spouse, you are probably responsible for farm chores and getting the kids to bed on your own during the busy times of the year for the various CDE's. Thank you for being able to balance everything. 

Thank you to all of the agricultural educators and their spouses for shaping our future generations.
