We are so proud of Mrs. Danielle Zdunich for being awarded the honor of IB Educator of the Year, Primary Years Program, by the California Association of IB Schools!
Mrs. Z is a beloved member of the McKinley community, and represents the high quality McKinley teachers that are dedicated to giving our children a strong foundation in understanding, cultural awareness, and inquisitiveness. Mrs. Z is an exemplary example to her students, a strong leader, and truly embodies the principles of an IB educator. We’re so lucky to have her!
“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.” – Mrs. Zdunich, 2nd/3rd Grade
Congratulations, Mrs. Z.!!
