Mrs. Zdunich

Hi!  I’m Mrs. Z. and I love working at McKinley.  I love the IB program and think that it provides a unique and wonderful education allowing children to gain insight into the broader world around them.

I am a life long learner, and I aspire to create life long learners in my classroom.  I want my students to leave me with a desire to learn, a respect for all people, and appreciation for the differences they see between and amongst one another.  I want my students to feel that they can accomplish most anything if they set their minds to it.

I love the Arts.  I have been singing, dancing, and playing piano since I was 5.   I try and expose my students to as much art as I can while relating it to all the other content areas we study.

I also work on the Student Council.  I love working with former students in this aspect.  I think it is important for all children to have an opportunity to see themselves as leaders.  Student Council provides children with large and small roles to demonstrate leadership.

I am an avid traveler.  I would love to visit all 7 continents in my lifetime.  I have been to 13 countries so far… and will never forget the discoveries and personal journeys each trip has brought to me.  I am hoping to visit Australia, India and Ireland in the near future.  I am bilingual and would love to learn ASL and French next.

I frequently write grants to Donorschoose.org.  This is an amazing website designed for teachers who are in need of supplies.  You can find my projects at DonorsChoose.org/mrs.z.  Parents can search for grants by state, then district, then school to find classrooms at McKinley in need.
