Teacher of April

By Amber Antinora

Because of her years of dedicated teaching at Sterling High School, Sally Zinn is April’s Teacher of the Month.

She has taught at SHS for eight years and started teaching 27 years ago. She teaches Spanish I and all levels of French. She was previously an English teacher.

Zinn originally wanted to be a teacher to write on the chalkboard, but now the reason she teaches is “to see the light in someone’s eyes flick on.”Sally Zinn

She was born in Grand Junction, CO and later moved to Colorado Springs. Since then, she has traveled to ten countries; eight of those being European countries, Mexico and Costa Rica. She has been on many of those trips with students. She says the Costa Rica trip in 2015 is one of her best memories as a teacher.

Zinn loves spicy dishes. Her favorite food is green chili. Outside of school she enjoys politics, working on her yard and cooking. Her favorite holiday is Christmas because she gets to be with her family. One fun fact her students do not know is she tried out for the Ice Capades, a traveling ice skating show, when she was 18.

The Bengal Cry wishes Zinn good fortune in her future endeavors, as her impact on SHS will be felt for years to come.
