Michael Zimmer has been named district teacher consultant for Hopkins County Schools.
Zimmer, who has a 15-year career in education, has been curriculum coordinator at Madisonville North Hopkins High School for the past six years.
“I’m looking forward to the challenges of this new position,” he said. “I am excited to build upon the skills and knowledge I have gained as curriculum and assessment coordinator while working with schools across the district.”
During his time at MNHHS, he has also served as assessment coordinator and head volleyball coach. He will continue to coach this upcoming school year. He previously worked as technology integration specialist at Hopkins County Central High School and a social studies teacher at both HCCHS and Webster County High School.
“Having worked with Mike Zimmer as curriculum coordinator at the high school level, I know what a wealth of knowledge he brings to the table, especially in the areas of instructional strategies and assessment,” said Hopkins County Schools Superintendent Deanna Ashby. “We are looking forward to adding this piece to our puzzle to help us bridge the gap between the Central Office and the schools, especially in dealing with Infinite Campus, RTI (Response to Intervention) and accountability.”
Zimmer earned a bachelor’s degree in social studies from Western Kentucky University, and master’s degrees in education and administration, both from Murray State University.
