Zachary taught conversational English at Seondeok Girls’ High School in the historical city of Gyeongju, ancient capital of the Silla Dynasty. As an English Teaching Assistant, Zachary instructed high school students in conversational English while promoting cultural and personal exchange. Zachary also focused on introducing the topic of diversity to students to broaden their perspectives and encourage a sense of cultural openness. After one year in Gyeongju, Zachary renewed his Fulbright grant and moved to the capital of South Korea, Seoul. There, Zachary currently teaches English conversation and American culture at Daedong Taxation High School. In addition to teaching, Zachary has attempted to engage deeply with his host country by joining a community orchestra, taking dance classes, and taking Korean classes.
