|My name is Michael Zubia and I
am in Moravian College's
post-baccalaureate teaching certification program. Upon
will be certified to teach Social Studies at the secondary
level. I have always had a passion to be a teach and I am looking
forward to the day when I will have my own classroom.
I was raised in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. My family is very important to me and has had an enormous impact on my life. I have a younger brother and sister who I am very close with and my parents have supported me throughout my entire life. My family has helped me become who I am today, and I am very thankful for everything they have done for me.
I graduated from Bethlehem Catholic High School in 2006 and then went on to Moravian College. As an undergraduate at Moravian I studied Accounting and graduated with an Accounting degree in May 2010. I enjoyed accounting but I realized by my junior year that teaching was what I wished to do with my life. I decieded at this time that upon graduation I was going to go back to school to be certified.
During my time at Moravian I competed in both baseball and basketball at the varsity level. I had the rare opportunity to play collegiate baseball with my little brother, which is an opportunity not many get to experience. Sports have had a huge impact on my life and I believe that many life lessons can be learned by competing in athletics. One day I want to be a head high school varsity coach in either baseball or basketball and hopefully pass the enjoyment of competition and teammwork down to my players.
