Zach Smith

Education Consultant, Online Course Instructor

Zach Smith is a District Instructional Specialist within Sanger Unified School District and Educational Consultant and Online Course Instructor with Novak Educational Consulting. Zach spends most of his day at Sanger as a key figure facilitating the district-wide roll-out of Universal Design for Learning.

Prior to his working with teachers, he worked as a special day class teacher at an elementary school in Sanger and as part-time faculty with Fresno State University teaching future special education teachers. Zach loves dreaming, presenting, and coaching around Universal Design for Learning and the implications of UDL in the world of education.

When not thinking about and implementing UDL, Zach enjoys spending time with his wife, Dorothy, and their four daughters. On some random and highly rare days he can also be found standing in some obscure river pretending to know how to fly fish.
