Zach Dunkirk
Junior High Science Teacher/P.E. Teacher


This is my 20th year teaching at Edinburg Schools.  I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Science and P.E. classes. I went to Litchfield High School and Participated in Golf, Basketball, and Baseball. I then attended Eastern Illinois University and received a Bachelors in Science.

My Expectations for for 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Science Classes:  Come into class ready to Learn, Be Respectful to the Teacher and other Students, Observe the Guidelines of Social Distancing from each other and Wearing Masks. 

During Remote Learning, Attendance is required every day so I will be able to Submit a Students name into Teacherease.

Remember if I give Homework/Quizzes, Students need to check their Chromebooks for any Assignments that have been Assigned.


Textbooks to be used:

 6th Grade Science:  Human Biology and Health, Chemical Building Blocks, Inside Earth. 

7th Grade Science:  Cells and Heredity, Chemical Building Blocks, Inside Earth, and Astronomy.

8th Grade Science:  From Bacteria to Plants and Motion, Forces, and Energy.
