My name is Mark Arzate and I am so excited and humbled with the opportunity to continue teaching and coaching in the Brave Nation for the 2018-19 school year. I am teaching 6th and 7th grade Social Studies as well as coaching football, basketball, and track. This year marks my 4th year coaching and teaching.
I am a native of San Angelo, Texas and a graduate of San Angelo Central High School. After graduating high school, I completed a semester of college at Sul Ross State University. Soon after, I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. I completed a four year enlistment and decided to finish my degree. I am a proud 1998 graduate of Angelo State University where I earned a BA in Government and received my officer commission through the ROTC program. Additionally, I completed my Masters of Military Art and Science degree from Air University during a distinguished 20-year military career in the U.S. Air Force. I was able to obtain an alternative teaching certification through Texas A&M-Commerce in June of 2016. I am blessed with my beautiful wife Delinda and have two children Madison 17 and Anthony 14. My family and I are proud to call Lavon home.
My teaching philosophy is that ALL children are lifelong learners and must understand the significance of their responsibilities in their future aspirations.
