Mr. Zachary Senger

Hello and welcome to my humble biography, likely the only one I’ll ever write.

I am a Decaturite (Decaturian?) and was provided my learning through Decatur Public Schools until middle school. I graduated from Mt. Zion High School. I earned my undergraduate degrees from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in Anthropology and History. I then had the strong desire to make money and buy things, so I joined the workforce! I worked and I worked. I bought many things. I did not particularly like my job so I went back to school. I procured a Master’s Degree from DePaul University in 2012, however I could not find a job as an educator. Thus, I went back into the workforce, and bought more things. The year was 2016 I received the most peculiar call, it was a job interview for a teacher at SDMS. I was shocked, I had all but given up hope of realizing my dream of (having summers….) being a Teacher. 2016-2017 was my first year teaching and it was swell, and based upon that experience I am back for round deuce. It’s looking to be a great year as well!


I look forward to a great year at SDMS!
