Hello Firewolves! My name is Zach Granoff and I teach Computer Science, Game Design, and Esports here at Samueli Academy. I was born and raised in Newport Beach, CA and graduated from Chapman University with a B.S. in Computer Science and later a Masters of Arts in Teaching.
My passion is to give students the skills needed to navigate and manipulate the world of technology that we are so integrated with today. With the rapid growth of the technological, video gaming, and competitive gaming industries, it is imperative that I give students knowledge of programming, creative design, organization, and critical thinking so that they may excel in these competitive vocations.
When I am not teaching, you can usually find me playing video games, surfing, swimming, skating, or riding my bike. I am privileged to become a part of the Samueli Family, and look forward to pushing the boundaries of hands-on learning with student-centered experiences.
