William Pankonin has been teaching English language arts for almost fifteen years. This year is William’s seventh year teaching English at Niwot High School. William has had various careers, including one in the construction trades and also one as a programmer in Information Technology. By far, William enjoys and values teaching more than any of his previous careers. He has always maintained a passion for fiction, and loves teaching students the themes of the great works. When not teaching, William is spending time with his spouse Charlotte and their fun doggos, Oban and Freyja. He also loves spending a day up in the mountains, fly fishing, bike riding, or skiing the backcountry.
