Dr. Shai Zacarev
Dr. Shai Zacaraev is a Dean in the Upper School at the Dwight-Englewood School in Englewood, NJ. He has had multiple careers over the years that have spanned the gamut across technology, finance, and education. He holds an undergraduate degree and Masters in computer and information science from Brooklyn College, a Masters in education leadership from Columbia University and a doctorate in educational and organizational leadership from the University of Pennsylvania.
He is currently teaching a course on Quantum algorithms as an advanced elective to high school students. This is a course he developed with the help of one of his old professors (Professor Yanofsky, a previous guest here) and has been able to refine it over the years. He is looking forward to discussing the course on this podcast and begin to rethink when and what we are introducing to our students as they grow in this fast paced, ever evolving technological age, where change is the new norm.
