Zackary Petker G'17
Masters in Curriculum and Instruction
As far back as elementary school, Zackary Petker recalls wanting to be a teacher. When it was time to choose a college, the Long Island native visited Saint Rose on a friend’s recommendation, fell in love with it, and immersed himself in the education program. By the fall, he had a job, teaching at Hackett Middle School, where he’d done his observation. During his first year of teaching, Petker also earned his master’s degree in curriculum and instruction at Saint Rose.
