Mr. Koop

In AG we dont just build and create great projects, we build resumes and create employable students too! 
I am Mr. Koop and I am one of three of Ag teachers here at EHS. The 2018-2019 year is my 10th  of teaching AgriScience and welding. My goal and desire is to prepare you for the workplace both through classroom instruction, industry certifications and FFA contest.
So far we have certified 29 students in NCCER and another 77 in OSHA and 7 in AWS welding certifications. Additionally we also had 2 students pass their SolidWorks certifications which opens up job opportunities to them right out of high shcool paying $20/hr. And last year alone our FFA contest brought home more than 15 awards and banners for Area and District competitions.
There is not another progam on this campus or in some colleges for that matter that can do the things we do in the Edna CTE department. So if you want to be one of the more than 115 certified students and are ready to learn some employable job skills and get your resume or job application filled with the right stuff, come see us. 
So here we go, lets get busy and have another great and productive year!
Be sure to check out our present and past Ag Project photos at the link to the left of this page. Also, additonal information about the classes I teach and upcoming events can be found in the links to the left as well.
