Dear students and families,As the new semester gets underway, I would like to start off byintroducing myself. My name is Mr. Zachary Smith and I will bea student teacher in your classroom the first half of thissemester. This wonderful opportunity to learn here is the laststep I will take before receiving my degree is Secondary EnglishEducation with additional endorsements in ESL, reading and journalism from Drake University. I am very excited to be here atAnkeny working in Ms. Lawler's classroom.A little bit about myself…I am a 2003 Valley High Schoolgraduate; I hope that you will not hold that against me. Followinghigh school, I attended Drake University where I earnedbachelor's degrees in public relations and English with a minor inreligious studies. The highlights of this time at Drake werespending two and a half years as a residence assistant (RA) andstudying abroad in Christchurch, New Zealand. Following thesedegrees, I moved to China. At Chengde Medical University, inHebei Province, I served as a foreign language expert where Itaught English to nursing students. I also taught English duringthe evenings to elementary school-aged children. Uponreturning from China, I decided to come back to Drake to earn adegree in Secondary English Education. After completing thisdegree, I will return to China to continue my study in secondlanguage acquisition.In my free time, I very much enjoy reading and listening tomusic. Bill Bryson, currently, is my favorite author even though Iwill read just about anything printed. As far as music goes, anymusic you find in my iTunes library will closely resemble jazz orbluegrass.I am looking forward to getting to know you all in the upcomingweeks. We will have many wonderful experiences in the weeks
