Sean Ziebarth has been a teacher at Fountain Valley High School (FVHS) for nine years. While on paper, Ziebarth is the teacher of Baron Banner and Baron Broadcast News (BBN), he prefers the term adviser and he has been the adviser for seven years. He believes that if students are given ownership over their work and learning it is more rewarding, then they are able to get more out of the experience.
When Ziebarth isn’t teaching his English classes or advising for his journalism classes, he has other jobs he’s responsible for. In addition to that, Ziebarth is also the webmaster, in charge of social media, and is the instructional rounds facilitator at FVHS.
Ziebarth has attended many schools, including FVHS, Orange Coast College, Golden West College, Coastline Community College, Brigham Young University, University of Utah, and National University. He’s received his bachelor’s degree in English at Brigham Young University and his master’s degree in Fine Arts at the University of Utah.
In his free time, Ziebarth enjoys eating, looking for new food, trying new foods, and sharing new foods with others. When Ziebarth isn’t eating he enjoys riding his bike and shredding up terrain on boards, whether the terrain be cement, water, or snow. He also enjoys reading and taking pictures, as well as snuggling.
