Happy Arbor Day: Ag Ed Family Trees

Happy Arbor Day!  With IAVAT Conference is right around the corner, we want to make sure we are getting our forest of Ag Ed Family Trees ready!

The Illinois STAR (State Teach Ag Results) Committee is continuing the tradition of having Illinois agriculture teacher display their “Ag Ed Family Tree” in their classrooms!  We began this project three years ago and have handed out over 350 trees!  We ask that you proudly display your framed Ag Ed Family Tree in your classroom and challenge your students to be the next leaf on your tree.

If you would like a tree and have never received one or if you need an updated tree please fill out this Google Form.  If you need your tree reprinted, please mark that on the Google form and you will only need to add the names of the missing people or any corrected names.  You can also email with changes.  

New teachers that went through an Illinois University have submitted their information for their tree.  All other new teachers can submit their request for a tree by completing this form

The form will ask you to share:

  • The teachers/institutions that led to you becoming a teacher (your roots)
  • The high school students that came through your programs and pursued agriculture education (the leaves)
  • The student teachers that have come through your program (the leaves)

All information is reported by you, so whoever you choose to claim will appear on your tree.  We will be presenting the fifth crop of Ag Ed Family Trees this fall!  If there are any questions please let me know
