Each year two students studying to be agriculture teachers are selected for a Teach Ag Internship. This year, Sarah Wollenburg and Chrisinda Scheideler were selected for the internship and will spend the summer doing various activities to learn the ins and outs of being and agriculture teacher.
They get valuable professional development experiences at Nebraska Career Educators Conferences and Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education Institute.
