Mr. Joseph Zangaro
I teach English and Special Education classes and provide support for classes in English, History, Culinary Arts, and Spanish. I also teach a new class called Tomorrow's Teachers for students interested in the teaching profession and all service professions. I have also been active in alternative education in the district over the past 12 years.
Besides my teaching duties, I have been active in a variety of school programs and events at Pemberton since returning from San Diego in 2006. I resurrected the People's Choice Awards, wherein all staff members can select to recognize a student whose qualities they admire. Students receive a beautiful trophy and the staff member reads a narrative they have written that celebrates the student. This year's program is slated for Thursday, May 11th.
I am co-advisor for the Future Teachers of America. We meet regularly on Thursday and encourage students to learn about teaching careers and to consider the vocation of teaching that we so strongly believe is important for our society.
