Zach Pittman



Hello there!

My name is Zachary Pittman and I teach Social Studies at JCHS. More specifically I teach AP Human Geography, AP World History, and United States History. So if you are planning on taking advanced Social Studies courses you will have the pleasure/pain of taking a class with me. I grew up just over the border in North Carolina in a small town called Burnsville that is very similar to Mountain City so I feel right at home here. I originally attended Appalachian State and recieved a Political Science degree. After a few years of soul searching I realized that I could not deny my true calling anymore and I returned to ASU to earn my teaching degree. It was the best decision of my life. I love my job. I thank God that i got so lucky in getting my first job here at JCHS and I never plan to leave.

I love sports. Football, basketball, hockey, and tennis are my favorites, but I will watch any type of athletic competition. That love of sports manifested itself in a coaching position with the Lady Longhorns basketball team, and I also unoffcially help with tennis. In my free time I enjoy trout fishing and hiking.

If you have me for class be prepared for a lot of goofiness and work. I have fun with my classes but we work hard as well. (:
