Kevin Zonnefeld, Social Studies

I want to start by telling you a little bit about myself and who I am. I am a farm boy from rural Iowa who has spent the last fourteen years of my life either living here in the Twin Cities or in Managua, Nicaragua.  I have also spent those last years with my wonderful partner who works as a Social Worker at Justice Page Middle School.  Along with two beautiful children who are busy learning about the world they find themselves growing up in.

I love black coffee (my first business adventure was actually co-owning and managing a coffee shop), cooking, reading, biking, running, music, writing, traveling and am a current events junky. 

During my first experience at Washburn, I worked as a Special Education Assistant (SEA) in the Federal Setting 3 program from 2007-2010.  In 2010 we packed up our things and moved to Nicaragua. Our original plan was to stay for a couple of years and ended up living there for six. I returned to Washburn in 2016 as a part of the Social Studies Department.  This year I am teaching 11th grade Collaborative World History with Mrs. Arévalo and two elective courses within the department: African American Ethnic Studies and Chican@/Latin@ Ethnic Studies.

If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions or comments please do not hesitate to reach out and get into contact with me.
