Zach Mason, 32, is a new junior/senior high physical education teacher at Uniontown.

He attended Fort Scott Community College, McPherson College, and Fort Hays University.

His teaching experience includes one year as a K-6 Special Education teacher at Dighton Elementary School, one year Special Education Para at St. John-Hudson Elementary School, and seven years K-12 Physical Education/Weights and Conditioning instructor at Crest Schools.

His hometown is Uniontown.

He and his wife, Megan Mason, have three daughters Markayla, Paxton, and Rory.

Outside of school he enjoys golf, softball, hunting, and spending time with family.

He wanted to become a teacher to help kids find the fun in staying active, he said. and his college track coach, Robert Spies, inspired him to teach.

The best part of teaching for Mason isĀ  “Seeing kids progress and do things they might have thought they couldn’t do.”

What are the challenges?

“Trying to get kids to understand that running and lifting are not the only ways to stay physically active. He wants students to understand that exercise as simple as walking, golfing, and bowling have health benefits.”

Luke Davis has been hired by USD 235 to teach math at the junior high school.

“Since Luke Davis still needs to complete a semester of student teaching, Ed Ramsey will also be in the room with him during the first semester,” USD 235 Superintendent Vance Eden said. “Ed is a retired teacher who moved to Uniontown a year or two ago. Last year he was a substitute teacher and substitute bus driver for the district. Luke will be providing the majority of the instruction. Once Luke graduates in the fall, he would then be able to assume the full responsibilities as the teacher.”

Davis graduated from Uniontown High School, before attending Pittsburg State University.
