Mr. Eric Ziemba

My name is Eric Ziemba and I pleased to call McDowell High School my teaching HQ! 
 In 2014 I graduated for the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Biology and concentration in Secondary Education. After graduation, I began my teaching career working interim positions at Watauga and Mitchell High School. From there, I began working full time as a science teacher at West Caldwell High School for two years before moving closer to home and working here at McDowell High School.
In October 2017, my wife and I welcomed our beautiful daughter Emma into the world and boy has it been an adventure ever since!

I look forward to an exciting year full of challenges and success and personal growth in each and every student. However, in order for this occur, I expect students to be active participants in class, work hard, and be willing to step outside their comfort zones and push themselves to do more than just the bare minimum. If a student feels that he or she needs assistance, they are more than welcome to schedule a time to come and work and or get assistance on assignments with me after school. If you or your parent have any questions or concerns, pleas feel free to email me at
