Food Technology and Safety 
Advanced Animal Science
 
Why do you teach ag?
I feel it is very important to teach the proper way to advocate for agriculture. I believe leadership roles are vital to agriculture in general. I hope I have and continue to help develop individuals for those key roles.
 


What is your favorite classroom memory?
I don't have just have one, but I would say I really enjoy watching my freshman during their first semester as they buy in to our program.

What is your favorite FFA memory?
It would have to be when helped my first Texas FFA state officer get elected, and also my second. I am hoping for number three before I retire!

What advice would you give yourself as a first-year teacher?
Seek advice from seasoned teachers because most of what we do can’t be found in a book.



Why do you believe that ag education is so important?
I believe that agriculture advocacy is very important, with fewer people involved in production agriculture education is vital.

Do you have advice on balancing work/home life?
Sometimes it is hard, but I always try to do my best to take off on Sunday. Most of time work will wait until Monday.
