Zachary "...I've free-climed in Germany, played baseball in Korea, hitchhiked in Argentina, and drove across gelid Mongolia through winter. My disparate life is united by an insatiable curiosity, a desire which proves invaluable in both teaching and learning. This curiosity has taken me around the intellectual, and physical, world. I started out studying physics at seventeen, after two years fell in love with literature, and switched majors, picking up another along the way--political science--and earned my first two degrees. After university, I wanted to discover a new culture, and profession, and settled on teaching in China..."

In the future, I hope to teach aspiring teachers in a college of education..."
