Welcome to Mr. Zinkgraf's Class
Greetings, I look forward to being your 7th Grade History teacher this year. I grew up in Spokane Washington and love the Pacific Northwest. I earned my Bachelor of Education degree at Eastern Washington University. While teaching down in the Las Vegas area for five years I earned my Masters of Education degree from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. I am excited to be back for my 19th year in the Everett School District. Further, I am looking forward to a great year with a fantastic group of students, parents, staff, and administrators. There will be high expectations for all and with those come high achievement and success!(School Closure due to Covid-19)My school website left side red column and calendar are valuable sources and should be checked regularly for updates and student pacing of work. Also clarifications of the work expectations and reasons for engagement. I will endeavor to once a week send out a group email, through LMS, to parents/guardians and students of updates concerning pacing of learning at home and district news.As the year comes to a close, student work needs to have an "all due date". My "all due date" is Sunday 6/14/20, all work must be turned in by this time in order to leave Mr. Zinkgraf with time to complete grades in order for the district to send them home.Grades will be finalized Monday 6/15/20 or no later than Tuesday 6/16/20. I want to thank all the Parents/Guardians/Students who worked so hard during this time to be continuous learners from home.Have a Wonderful Summer Break!Links for learning History/Geography:Contact Mr. Zinkgraf

3/24/20: Teachers are now directed to request assessments be given, handed in, and feedback given, but not graded. Essays for Ch. 1 and Ch. 2 may be submitted to Mr. Z via email, just as you were doing to have me print them for the test. I will read, assess, and give you feedback about your learning. The Essay is your main vehicle to show your learning, it will not be graded. See calendar.
