Justin Feltz’s Early Field Experience at Fort Loramie High School

This past May I had the pleasure to be in a classroom with many eager young minds along with a great instructor, Mr. Matt Pleiman. Although the experience was short it was very fulfilling. It made me realize that I want to teach Ag Ed! I can honestly say I looked forward to going to school every day, and left every day with a smile on my face.

During my time at Fort Loramie we work in the shop extensively. Many students needed to finish up projects. The green house sale was also going on and kept students very busy as well. I was fortunate enough to be able to work side by side with the students and the instructor, helping them with whatever problem arose. This was honestly one of the best experiences I have had thus far in my college education. My early field experience has created a huge passion for me becoming an agriscience education instructor.Justin Feltz, photo 1

I had the awesome opportunity this summer to complete my EFE (Early Field Experience) with the Greenbrier County Extension, in my hometown of Lewisburg, W.V. Throughout my 80 hours that I completed, I found myself doing many different activities. Some of my more memorable activities included: coaching the 4-H Livestock Judging Team, painting the Tribal Council Circle at 4-H camp, helping our agriculture agent identify different problems, and even grading project books! This experience has really helped me identify what I want to do in life. I am glad to have this under my belt, and I am ready for another great semester this fall at Ohio State!
