Mr. Zach Wygal

Hello! This is currently my 9th year of teaching and my 8th year at the wonderful HJHS.  I aboslutley love teaching in my hometown! I am currently the 8th grade resource teacher, teaching instructional math and instructional literature as well as co-teaching literature and math.  I'm looking forward to incorporating more technology into the classroom as well as helping to prepare students for high school. 

In my free time I enjoy giving back to my community.  I helped to start the fundraising group Stamp Out Cancer in honor of my father.  So far we've raised over $500,000 for the Montgomery County Cancer Association. I also helped form the group Imagine Hillsboro which is going on it's 6th year. Within that group I am on the Parks and Rec committiee helping to put on the Summer Concert Series as well as the Cardboard Boat Regatta.



One of my favorite quotes is "Be the change you wish to see in the world"
