Welcome to Mr. Minnick's Sam Rayburn High School page. I am beginning my fourth year here at Sam Rayburn as an Ag Science teacher and FFA Advisor. This will begin my fifteenth year of my Ag Science teaching career. I am a 2004 graduate of Texas A&M - Commerce. I studied agribusiness and I have a minor in animal science. I am very fortunate to be here at Sam Rayburn with a great staff. My wife Shannon teaches in the elementary school. My stepson Jacob Burnett will be going in to the 6th grade and my oldest daughter Sarah will be in Pre-K. My youngest daughter turns two in September. Sam Rayburn ISD is very family oriented and that is a perfect fit for my family. I am involved personally in production agriculture from beef cattle production to forage and small grains production. I really enjoy teaching the youth about anything from FFA events and contests to showing livestock and ag mechanics projects. I am looking forward to another great school year.
