Zachary Anderson is a new math teacher at Pine Bluffs Jr. Sr. High School. He was born and raised in Lingle, Wyoming and later went to The University of Wyoming in Laramie. His first few weeks teaching have been challenging, he says " There's a lot of things that I'm learning that actually does the job that I didn't learn in college. It has definitely been a learning experience and I think I'm finally getting into my flow."

Anderson says, "One of my inspirations was my Math teacher in High School, he was a awesome teacher. He really had an impact on me as a person and student so I just wanted to have the same impact on students as well." He says math was his favorite subject and didn't want to write a lot of papers in college. " I still had to write just as many papers though." Anderson states.

" I love how Pine Bluffs is a small community and the school is small." Anderson says. He grew up in a small community so he appreciates the feel of a small community. Anderson is excited for this coming year and may more prosperous years to come at Pine Bluffs Jr.Sr. High School.

Nick Yelton is the new History teacher at Pine Bluffs Jr. Sr. High School. He was born in Glendale, Wyoming but grew up in Laramie, Wyoming. Yelton was a military child and has lived all over the United States including Alaska.

He says his first few weeks have been going great! Yelton says," Teaching here is cool because of the four day week and the student

s I get to teach now. I like upper level classes better because you get to explore more abstract ideas and more real world knowledge." He says he loved history and had good professors in college that led him to teaching it.

Yelton says," I like teaching because I like helping turd birds, because I was one of them in high school." He defines turd bird as difficult to deal with. Yelton looks forward to this year and many more years to come as a teacher at Pine Bluffs Jr. Sr. High School.
