Evan Czyzowski 

Evan Czyzowski has put off sleep until later in life


EXETER — Evan Czyzowski jokes about his busy schedule.


"I've put off sleep until later in my life," he said.


Czyzowski, 33, is an English teacher and drama program director at Sanborn Regional High School in Kingston. 


He's also president of Sanborn Regional Education Association and the Pathways program coordinator for arts, humanities, and human services.


A resident of Exeter, Czyzowski serves as a volunteer executive board member on the National Education Association-New Hampshire and volunteers with the Sino-American Bridge for Education and Health and the Polish-American English Summer Program.


After earning his bachelor's degree in English and then a master's degree in literature at the University of New Hampshire, Czyzowski worked as an adjunct instructor of English at UNH. 


A teaching career wasn't in the cards until he began working in the classroom. 


"It wasn't really planned that I was going to become a teacher. I started doing it at UNH and fell in love with it then," he said.


As one of the coordinators of the Pathways program at Sanborn, Czyzowski is working with a team to create a new program that better prepares students for college and their future careers. 


Through the program, he said high school students have the opportunity to explore their potential career options by working in internships and participating in job shadows while earning high school credits. 
Czyzowski is also often busy making plans to spend school vacations traveling abroad with students. 


As the former co-director of the Polish-American English Summer Program, Czyzowski brought groups of students to Poland for six weeks to work as interns teaching English to Polish students.


They've traveled to other parts of the world as well during February and April vacations, and soon will visit England to learn more about Shakespeare.


"I've done my best to show New Hampshire students the world," said Czyzowski, whose father was a Polish immigrant who came to New Hampshire in the 1970s.


For the past two summers, Czyzowski has traveled to China to collaborate with Chinese teachers on education strategies. He said collaboration has been a significant step toward understanding and bridging these education systems.


With a busy drama club rehearsal schedule and taking students to job shadows and on international educational trips, Czyzowski spends a lot of time with students outside of the classroom. 


"I think it speaks to the fact that teachers and educators aren't just in the classroom," he said.
