Why I Teach Ag: Mark Jarzombek

What ag education classes do you teach?
I teach Principles of AFNR, Practicum of AFNR and Livestock Production.
 
Why do you teach ag?
I love seeing students involved with agriculture. It doesn't matter if the student is leading a heifer across a show ring or a student driving a tractor and baling hay; I enjoy seeing young people in the agriculture industry. Young people are our future, and knowing they are helping us get ready for the future is important.



What is your favorite classroom memory as a teacher?
One of my favorites was an animal science lab we did several years ago where my students dissected cow hearts. Having the students see firsthand the different parts that we had covered in class was very fulfilling.

What is your favorite FFA memory?
There are so many to choose from. I think my favorite would be in 2014 when Floresville FFA won its first state contest in the Public Relations LDE. That remains a day and a memory that I will never forget!



Why do you believe that ag education is so important?
There are just too many uneducated people when it comes to agriculture today. I hear so many incorrect comments about agriculture that I strongly feel can be corrected with good ag education.
