Preparing for a New School Year!

Wow - I don't think there has ever been a crazier start to the school year than 2020! While some school districts are preparing to welcome teachers and students in-person to their classrooms, others are requiring 100% distance learning, and still others are offering a hybrid option. Our Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom (MAITC) program offers agriculture-themed, academic standards-based resources to help in whatever teaching environment you find yourself. Our MAITC team of Education Specialists and Regional Curriculum Specialists is available to offer guidance and help in any way possible. Please reach out to us!

Sending you postive vibes, creativity, stamina and good health for whatever situation you are walking into at the start of this school year!
