2024 Teacher of the Year

Headshot of James "Zak" Devore

Congratulations James “Zak” Devore

Zak Devore continually connects and devises new ways to reach a diverse classroom of students, leading to academic and social and emotional growth. He gives so much of his time to projects outside of his classroom and when he’s in his classroom, he works hard to make sure his students have the most supportive environment possible. From DJing to Disney to teaching, Zak does it all. This includes many small things (often under the radar) to make the culture at Reams better for students and adults. He embodies the Reams motto: Work hard. Be kind. Inspire dREAMS! We all love Zak!
