With Renee Gillard taking the reins as building administrator for Greenbush programs in McCune and Lindsay Knopp accepting a position as a second-grade teacher in Fort Scott, the opportunity arose for two teachers to join the team at the William L. Abernathy Science Education Center. We're pleased to announce two outstanding educators were selected:
Zach Sachs graduated from Wichita Northwest High School and received degrees from Pittsburg State University in education and political science. Zach currently teaches 5th and 6th grade math and science in Bronaugh, Mo., and has a significant background in STEM and computer science, which will enable new possibilities for instruction at the Science Center. Zach lives in Pittsburg with his wife, Rachael, who teaches math at Girard High School. (Rachael will also join us this summer as a camp counselor!)
Kenzie Heatherly is a familiar face at Greenbush having served as a camp counselor for the last two summers. Kenzie graduated from Fort Scott High School and received an education degree from Pittsburg State, and currently teaches biology, chemistry, and environmental science at Labette County High School. Kenzie has proven her hard work, dedication, and teaching expertise as a camp counselor, and we look forward to her joining the team next year.
