Mr. Zavala

Hello My Name Is...

Edwin Zavala, but the kids call me Mr. Z. (Less Vowels to pronounce)

I've been a military brat most of my life (since I was in 3rd grade.) I've bounced around the country, having lived in Alaska, California, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The weather in Del Norte County has fit me quite well, I am quite glad to be away from the hot Southern California summers.

I love working with kids, particularly helping them develop the specific skills of reading comprehension and composition. I believe there is nothing more important than helping individuals develop their capacity to read, understand text, and to engage in higher thinking about what they can read.

I love reading and promote it actively, children who read are consistently successful in school!

I've also taught Adult-Education for two years in Imperial County, having helped over 100+ adults earn their High School Equivalency/GED. My focus has been on teaching mathematics and reading comprehension skills in a way that was relevant to everyday life, and most importantly: useful. If any MKS parents need any support/guidance with regards to obtaining their GED, I am always an available resource.

I believe we are all lifelong learners, we are powerful models for our children, and I try to demonstrate on a daily basis how important education is to me, both at school and at home.
