Forthcoming teacher Marci Martinez, 22, from Tarleton State University has been assisting the students and teachers in the Agricultural and Consumer Sciences and FFA department at Belton High School since late September.
Martinez always had and loved animals growing up. And with a husband and father as welders, it was obvious to her the career path she would take. On Dec. 15 she will graduate and earn her Bachelor's Degree in Agriculture and Consumer Science with a certificate in teaching.
"I'm loving the whole experience," Martinez said. "I've been learning a lot from Mr. (Brad) .Hobbs and it's been great being able to be in a classroom and learn what it's like to create lesson plans, manage your students, and teach them in a fun way."
The classes that Martinez has been assisting in teaching are Wildlife, Vet Tech, and Ag Mechanics.
"The feedback has been very positive from her and the students," Agricultural Science teacher Brad Hobbs said. "I've been teaching for 18 years and I'm at that point where I feel I can really help out new teachers. It's been great having her here."
