Mr. Zachary Ostrand (Mr. Z)

Hey there! My name is Zachary Ostrand and this will be my 13th year as a public educator (Just kidding, it's my 1st year but I promise I'm good!). I graduated from NAU and did my student teaching in Flagstaff. I wanted to give back to the community that raised me so I moved back to the Valley, where I grew up.

I LOVE teaching world history. I also don't teach world history, but I do love it. I teach Medical Science, Forensic Science and Health classes; and I love those too! My hobbies include: writing IEPs, hanging out with my hedgehog (his name is Ricky), watching the New York Rangers, listening to podcasts and long walks to the beach. You may have seen me while dropping off/picking up your student, I'm the guy riding his bike to and from school (yes, I'm aware that the helmet makes me look dorky, but I'm trying to set a good example for the kids!). If you see me, feel free to wave hello! If I recognize you I'll return a wave or peace sign :) if I don't recognize you, I'll probably just pedal faster. Feel free to browse the photo gallery for a plethora of pictures of Ricky.
