Who We Are


The National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) and the Tennessee Association of Agricultural Educators (TAAE) seek to advance agricultural education and promote the professional interests and growth of agriculture teachers as well as recruit and prepare students who have a desire to teach agriculture. TAAE is an association of members that are involved in school-based agricultural education at any level, from middle school through post-secondary, and state agricultural education leaders. We advocate for agricultural education, provide professional development for agricultural educators, and work to recruit and retain agricultural educators in the profession. We offer a variety of programs and services to support this three-pronged mission.

The governing body of TAAE consists of a board of directors with a president, three regional vice presidents, secretary, and treasurer who are all educators elected by their peers. The board of directors are elected from each district in the state.
