Sarah Zook, Heritage Project teacher from Great Falls Central, is featured in the Trib’s “Teachers and Students” column.


Sarah Zook teaches business education classes at Central and advance placement statistics.

She is involved with DECA Club, the yearbook, is a debate coach and sophomore class advisor. She established the DECA Club at Central and took six students to the national DECA competition in California last spring. She coordinated Central’s participation in the Montana Heritage Project, sponsored by the Art Ortenberg and Liz Claiborne Foundation.

Her nomination says, “Mrs. Zook is an outstanding instructor with a gift for technology who goes above and beyond what is normally expected. She gives an incredible amount of time outside of her normal work day to insure that staff and students have the highest level of computer-related technology available to them. Her knowledge of technological equipment and products has brought Central to a level of technology that parallels, and in many ways, exceeds, what is available to students throughout the state.

“Mrs. Zook, through an endless amount of physical and mental energy, is always available to help and train staff in new, state of the art educational programs. Her ability to address each situation with a smile and a kind word encourages even the most computer-illiterate person to grow in skills and utilize the technology daily in their classrooms.

“Sarah’s teaching style is creative, diverse and exploratory, her colleagues believe their is no student she could not teach. She is also responsible for the development and implementation of new business classes that include business law, web design and yearbook.”
