Informative Entertainment for the Abnormal Ag Teacher
Our goal is to build a community of agriculture educators who create class content and a support system for each other. We hope that this podcast will be entertaining and informative while joining us together to reach a common goal of educating students in the field of agriculture. Each agriculture teacher has a unique tool kit of experience and skills and each of you have something to teach! The Unorthodox Owl is a place for us to combine our "outside of the box" ideas and innovative ways of thinking and bring them to the light!
