Mr. Zachary Myers
Greetings, my name is Zachary Myers, and I am from Mobile, Al. I attended Cottage Hill Christian Academy from 3k until I graduated high school. After high school I was accepted into college at the University of Montevallo. During my time there, in addition to my studies, I competed on the cross country and track and field teams for three years. I have run three half marathons and have competed in numerous races in and out of the state of Alabama.
Outside of sports, I have always had a passion for serving others. In college, I served students as a resident assistant, played guitar at the BCM, and helped launch a collegiate church plant.
My passion toward teaching began my senior year of high school when I worked at a summer day camp at my church. I quickly discovered my love for teaching and more specifically for teaching younger kids. That passion continued to grow as I went through my years in college, and I took advantage of my connections in Alabaster and Mobile and shadowed at numerous elementary schools. Those opportunities continued to validate my calling to be an Elementary School teacher.
I also worked part-time in Vestavia Hills, Al while I was in college at an elementary after-school care program. In the spring of 2020, I was privileged to complete my internship at Meadow View Elementary school in a 1st grade classroom.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Montevallo. Because of my Savior, supportive family, and encouraging friends, I am at this unique point in my life. I find tremendous joy in being a part of the Alabaster City School family.
