Abstract (Summary)

School-Based Agricultural Education programs provide experiences and opportunities that are conducive to academic success in students. This study sought to explore the importance and inclusion of emotional intelligence in agricultural educators, who served as students’ social and emotional coaches, as well as developers of academic success. This study was determined that Emotional Intelligence of Agricultural Educators could be developed, further supporting the improvement of content retention in students. Based on the findings of this research, this study determined that in the sub-categories of Emotional intelligence, women had a higher emotional intelligence in Overall Emotional Intelligence (OEI), Emotional Self-Awareness (ESA), Emotional Awareness of Others (EAO). Whereas this study found where some areas men and women had the same level of emotional intelligence. Because teacher effectiveness is positively correlated with student success and that the emotional experiences of teachers (i.e., emotional intelligence) can have a positive outcome on teaching practices and student retention of content, professional development targeting improvement in emotional intelligence should occur.
