KEARNEY – AnnaLisa Estrela, agricultural education instructor at Ashland Greenwood Public Schools, was recognized as the 2019 Outstanding Teacher by the Nebraska Agricultural Educators Association (NAEA) at the NAEA Banquet held in Kearney on June 5 at the Nebraska Career Education Conference.

The award recognizes leadership in civic, community, agriculture/ agribusiness and professional activities. Outstanding agricultural educators are innovators and catalysts for student success in agricultural education.

“I believe that FFA provides so many students with the self-esteem and leadership they will need in order to grow and mature in the world of agriculture,” Estrella said.

Estrela does this by promoting student leadership in the chapter, school and community. By securing grants she has been able to improve her program and instruction.

Estrella also has taken part in numerous professional development opportunities such as: Tri State SAE conference, DELTA, Southeast Dual Credit Welding Certification, NAEA Teacher Mentoring Program, Food and Nutrition Science Institute and served on the Agriculture Standards Revision Team.
