Michael Zitzer, assistant principal at Parkway North High, was recently selected as one of nine exceptional education leaders for The Opportunity Trust’s fourth Catalyst Fellowship cohort.
The Catalyst Fellowship is a selective program that provides community and support to educators as they imagine, build, and test new ideas and approaches to teaching and learning. Zitzer is the only recipient in the local readership area.
Although Zitzer’s ninth year in education, this is his first year with Parkway. Previously he served as a middle school math teacher and instructional coach. As a teacher, Zitzer was named the Hazelwood School District’s Most Outstanding First Year Teacher and the district’s Teacher of the Year.
