Agriscience Teacher Certification

A majority of Alabama’s agriscience teachers came through a traditional route by receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriscience Education from a state institution and therefore receiving a certificate to teach agriscience education in the state.  There are alternate routes for individuals to become agriscience teachers today.  All routes have some similarities.  Passing the Praxis II in Agriculture is one of those. For more information on the Praxis II, click here.

Alternative Master’s Degree (Auburn University):

Students graduating with an agriculture-related bachelor’s degree may wish to enroll in the Alternative Master’s Degree Program with the College of Education.  Students have to enroll in graduate school, complete coursework and an internship to be awarded a Master’s Degree in Agriscience Education with a teaching certificate.  For more information click here.

Alternative Certification:

Individuals who hold a degree from an accredited university in an agriculture-related field and who had a GPA of at least 2.5 may be eligible to become an agriscience teacher.  This process is called a Career and Technical Alternative Baccalaureate-Level Certificate (ABC).  For more information on this process, click here.

Additional Teaching Field:

Teachers certified in another area can seek an additional certification in agriscience education after two years of classroom experience by meeting certain criteria.  For more information click here.

Reciprocity:

An individual who holds a valid professional certificate in a teaching field or area of instructional support that has been issued by another state, a U.S. territory, the District of Columbia, or the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) may meet requirements for Alabama certification if Alabama offers comparable certification in terms of area/grade levels/degree level. For more information click here.

The U.S. Department of Education recently launched CubeSat, a new national challenge to bring space missions to students. High schools are invited to design and build CubeSat prototypes in the classroom or at home. The challenge provides students with new learning opportunities to develop engineering, computer science, project management, and more skills for careers in aerospace and other industries. Virtual educational resources from Arduino, LEGO Education, MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative, NASA, and more are available to all schools. Up to five finalists will each receive $5,000 and additional in-kind prizes. Apply by Oct. 16.

Member Advocates for FFA Outside of Ag
As we wrap up August and the back to school season, we sat down with FFA member Dekota MeGee who plans to advocate for ag in a career outside of the field. We also chatted with experts from Bayer and Express to answer questions about preparing for college and careers. Check out resources, career infographics and more here.

Again, we are here to help. Please do not hesitate to reach out: education@ffa.org.

State Convention

Courtesy Corp Registration

During the State FFA convention we invite FFA members across the state to serve as Courtesy Corps members. Courtesy corps members are assigned in various shifts and locations during each session of the State FFA Convention. Duties may involve helping individuals on stage, checking for registration buttons as people enter, working backstage, helping direct people, registration, and/or other tasks that may need to be completed. This is a wonderful experience for FFA members to learn more about FFA.
