Berndtson Named National FFA Teacher Ambassador

Berndtson selected as one of the first PA teachers to serve

 

by Johanna Vogt - May 12, 2020

In early April, fifty-two teachers were named as the third class of FFA Teacher Ambassadors. From Wellsboro Area High School, Melanie Berndtson, along with Darla Romberger from Cumberland Valley High School, are the first teachers from Pennsylvania to be named National FFA Teacher Ambassadors.

Berndtson went through several phases to apply to be an FFA Teacher Ambassador. She wrote about her goals, teaching strategies, and how she uses various resources as a teacher. Once Berndtson was selected to move on to the next phase, she went through a round of interviews where she answered several questions as they determined if she was a good fit for the position. Berndtson was then selected as an FFA Teacher Ambassador.

As Berndtson serves, her responsibilities require training and connecting with other local teachers. She will also have opportunities to present at large gatherings, such as the National FFA Convention and the National Ag Teacher’s Association. She considers herself to be a “lifelong learner” and is looking forward to gaining ideas and information from various teachers around the country. She hopes that the information she learns will impact her students in all areas of their life and give them more opportunities in the field they choose to pursue. Berndtson also hopes to make a difference in other teachers’ lives as well. In the interview, she states, “If I can provide the tools for one teacher that helps them remain in the classroom and be able to make a difference in the lives of their students, then I would call that a success.”

From all the Home Page Family, we want to congratulate Melanie Berndtson on her great accomplishment. We are honored to have you as such an amazing influence in our community.
