Hello! My name is Zachary Norrbom. I grew up in Arlington County Schools, and went on to attend the University of Mary Washington. I graduated with a bachelors degree in Studio art in 2017, and went on to earn a Masters degree in education in 2018. I am honored to return to Arlington this year and begin my first year of teaching! This year I will be teaching 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade, as well as a couple Kindergarten and PreK classes. My favorite mediums include clay and printmaking, and I love to doodle detailed patterns with pens. When I am not making art, I enjoy playing sports, mainly ultimate frisbee, and exploring the outdoors.
