Teacher Ambassadors

Join our team of BCAITC Teacher Ambassadors that are working to help bring agriculture education to a community near you. Our ambassadors are teachers with a dedication and passion for agriculture education, who will work with their home communities, the BCAITC Education Specialist, and the BCAITC Executive Director to help deliver information about agriculture in BC, connect teachers with BCAITC resources and programs, and provide professional development opportunities for their regions of the province.
