GISH’s Zlomke recognized as INCubatoredu Leader Teacher

Grand Island Senior High business teacher Adam Zlomke was recently recognized as an INCubatoredu Leader Teacher at the 2020 Uncharted Learning National Summit. 

Zlomke teaches the INCubatoredu class in the Academy of Business & Communication at GISH. INCubatoredu is a high school entrepreneurship curriculum program from Uncharted Learning. 

Zlomke said being able to teach the INCubatoredu class has made his teaching career even more fun. He said the class offers students an opportunity to start a real business while in high school. 

“The experiences I have received over the last five years have been amazing,” Zlomke said. “I have helped students take that dream idea and make it a reality.”

INCubatoredu is a full-year course that offers an authentic entrepreneurship experience as students build their own businesses. Students develop their own product or service startup to gain investment funds in a final shark-tank style pitch event. Real entrepreneurs and industry experts serve as volunteer coaches and mentors guiding student teams through the processes of developing hypotheses about a business concept, testing those hypotheses, adapting, and continually learning and improving.

“Mr. Zlomke always puts students first,” said Fawn Gernstein, Principal of the Academy of Business & Communication. 

Gernstein said Zlomke is deserving of the recognition.

“Each and every day he brings his passion and enthusiasm to future entrepreneurs. Mr. Zlomke has built a community of learners within his classroom, and this is a great way for him to be recognized,” Gernstein said. “Congratulations, Mr. Zlomke!”

Zlomke said being named an INCubatoredu Leader Teacher speaks to the hard work and collaboration that has happened at GISH to make the class successful. He said many people are part of what makes the class successful, including the more than 16 community mentors and guest speakers who also help the students. 

“It really just shows that the hard work we have put into the program is starting to pay off,” Zlomke said.
