The Best Job in the World

Educational Leadership Coordinator Mark Schmalz

"I have the best job in the world," said Educational Leadership Coordinator Mark Schmalz. Schmalz has spent the last 40 years teaching everything from K-12, to teaching abroad, to being an elementary principal, to now teaching at Colorado Mesa University. Schmalz strives to provide new experiences and influences to his students, focusing on teaching a wide range of pedagogies to help students find their individual teaching styles. Most recently, he's helped create Starfish International, a non-profit focused on designing and funding a K-8 school in Mathare, Kenya.
