Welcome to our new Premier Series Coordinator
Submitted by ACTEAZ Executive Board

ACTEAZ is still striving to provide quality professional development opportunities for our members even in these challenging times. Since 2013 we have been able to offer many Premier Series Classes and have helped many of our members to be able to earn their teaching certification.

Debra Zurcher has worked with ACTEAZ for the last two years to make our Program grow and be even better. We are sad to see her go, but know she was offered an awesome opportunity and we look forward to supporting her and wishing her well.

To continue this path of success we are proud to welcome Robert Waller into the fold, as our new ACTEAZ Premier Series Coordinator.

As an experienced secondary and post-secondary educator, Robert has developed a passion and personal commitment geared toward helping others succeed by providing educational opportunities and meaningful learning experiences.

Robert earned a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies in 2001 from ASU West and in 2002 he received his Master of Arts in Education from the University of Phoenix. Robert also has several Adobe Certified Associate Certifications.

Robert is an accomplished CTE educator with nearly two decades of real-world classroom experience and the proven ability to develop high-quality, engaging, and practical curriculum resources and instructional materials. He has in-depth knowledge, understanding, and practical application of the CTE Delivery Model as well as instructional best practices for the Career and Technical Education classroom. He has worked at Marley Park Elementary Schools, Dysart Unified School District, Vista Valley High School, Arizona Department of Education and Hope College and Career Readiness Academy.

ACTEAZ is excited to work with Robert in continuing to grow and develop our Premier Series offerings to meet the needs and demands of our membership and Arizona’s CTE community.
