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 teaching position, teaching at Hackett Middle School, where he’d completed his observation. During his first year of teaching, Petker also earned his Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Saint Rose.
