This is a continuation of our series introducing you to the Inigral team. Meet Hannah Zachritz.
So Hannah, where’d you come from before Inigral?
I moved to San Francisco about a year ago as a recent grad from the University of Kansas. There I earned my BS in Finance and worked as an Account Executive for a higher education marketing company.
Q: Did you ever think you’d be working in education after you graduated?
I’ve always known I wanted to work in education. When I was younger, I wanted to be a teacher. I loved the idea of being able to command the attention and respect from a room full of people. Kindergarten originally peaked my interest. Granted in this case, the “Room full of people” would be three-feet tall and just as attentive to a hamster. The thought of making even the slightest impact on someone’s life is extremely motivating.
Q: What do you think education will look like in the future?
I’d love for education and curriculum to become more student led. Ideally, students would write their own text books and teach their peers. I think students taking an active role within the classroom will heighten their sense of responsibility over the material and control over their own learning process.
Q What was the funniest thing you’ve seen at the Inigral office?
Our scooter gang is pretty hard to top. Yep, it’s real and incredibly hilarious. There’s nothing else like rolling to work every morning to be greeted by six more scooters parked on the sidewalk out front. It’s a for sure sign you work with an entertaining group of people.
