Stillwater’s Kevin Zamborsky – Teacher Spotlight – Presented by Simmons Bank

Kevin Zamborsky is in his twentieth year of teaching in the Stillwater Public School system. He teaches music classes to students in high school, junior high, and middle school. In high school, he teaches wind ensemble, marching band, and AP Music Theory. He teaches Beginning Band to the seventh graders, and Beginning Low Brass to the sixth grade. Kevin oversees all aspects of the district’s band program.

Zamborsky reflects back to his younger years as a student and recalls why he enjoys teaching music to his students.

“My band experience in junior high and high school was incredible,” he said. “We had a very strong program that was regarded as one of the best in the state, and was selected to perform at the most prestigious international band and orchestra clinic twice while I was in high school. I wanted to have the opportunity to make great music while helping students to become mature and responsible young adults.”

Being able to be with his students from sixth grade to senior year is important to Kevin and he enjoys seeing their skills improve.

“I am very fortunate to get to work with most of our band students from the time they are in sixth grade until they graduate,” he said. “So for me, the greatest thing is watching these students develop as young adults and as musicians. Teenagers sometimes don’t make the best decisions, so it is our job to help them learn from their mistakes and guide them down a better path.”

Kevin is married to his wife Lindy, who also works for Stillwater Public School. Their son, Conner, is a sophomore computer science major at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois and their daughter Emma is planning on attending Southeastern Oklahoma State University in the fall. 

When he is not in the classroom teaching, Zamborsky has some hobbies that he enjoys doing. 

“I enjoy building with Legos in my free time and have a collection of Star Wars sets,” he stated. “I also enjoy working on puzzles and playing games.”
