Congratulations to Mr. Kevin Fast, Jerry Zucker Middle School’s 2014-2015 Rookie Teacher of the Year.

Mr. Fast teaches Project Lead the Way’s Gateway program, an exciting middle school curriculum which provides students an early introduction to the principals of engineering

Through the use of robotics, 3-D printing, and other STEM related tools, Mr. Fast has captivated his students this year and positioned his program for growth.

Zucker Middle School Principal Mr. Jacob Perlmutter remarked,  “In my experience, it’s pretty rare to have a teacher coming from industry and participating in the required Program of Alternative Certification for Educators (PACE) program to earn Rookie Teacher of the Year.”

Pelmutter added, “His transition to teaching has been remarkable – I am very proud to have him on our team!”
