When working with students and colleagues to provide high quality education in the agriculture industry, we make it a point to be very meticulous in our work.

Agriculture Educators in Arizona provide students with top-quality instruction and in-lab content to prepare them for success beyond high school.

As Agriculture Educators in Arizona, we believe strongly in the relationships that we build with our students, colleagues, communities, and industry personnel.

It is imperative in this day and age to form strong and long-lasting relationships and members of the AATA are prime examples of such practices.

The Arizona Agriculture Teachers Association is an organization that provides leadership and professional development opportunities for Arizona Agricultural Educators. We are a diverse group of individuals who pride themselves on their passion, dedication, and family-like inclusion.


The Arizona Agriculture Teachers Association is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of agriculture students by instilling in them a passion for agriculture and learning. It is through the commitment and dedication of the Arizona Agriculture teachers that we are able to enjoy such an outstanding program as the National FFA Organization in classrooms across the state and see continual growth in the Arizona FFA members through their achievements. Without their support, long hours of dedication, and unmatched commitment to excellence the Arizona Agriculture curriculum and Arizona FFA would not be at the level it is  today.


Relationships, Rigor, Relevance

We are agricultural educators. The most important word here being educator. It is our duty to educate our students in many ways. 

Agriculture is our tool. We see it necessary to teach our students beyond the realm of just agriculture education but instill in them life lessons, leadership abilities, and a great work ethic!

In a fast-moving world of agriculture and technology, we find it crucial to provide our students with up-to-date technologies, techniques and tactics in their educational experiences.

Being relevant in a world where technology changes daily, allows us to prepare the industry with high quality workers.
