• My name is Mrs. Katharine Ziel and I am pleased to say that this is my 17th year as a teacher in District 117.  I am not only a teacher, but a resident of the community. I was raised in Hickory Hills and currently live in the Palos Area. I am married and have three daughters, ages 16, 12 and 7.  I currently hold a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Olivet Nazarene University and an ESL certificate through National Lewis University.
    I have taught first grade general education for two years, kindergarten at Dorn for nine years, back to First Grade Math and Science for 5 years and now I'm back in Kindergarten and loving it! We are having a great year!
