Dear Parents,         

                My name is Mrs. Zayid and I will be in you're child's ELA class coteaching with Mrs. Bartkus.  I am excited to work with your child and  have a year filled with fun and learning!  I thought you might want to know a little about me!

    I am married and also have a daughter, Maysa, who just turned eight years old.  She is also in 3rd grade this year as well.  She takes up most of my free time, but some hobbies I enjoy are cooking, reading, and crafting! 

    I have my masters degree in elementary education.  This will be my second year with District 117.  Previous to working in Palos District 117, I worked in Chicago Public Schools for four years teaching fifth grade reading.

    It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students.  I attempt to teach with a passion for reading so that my students develop a desire to become life long learners.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  It is important to keep communication open between us, and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need.  You may contact me anytime through email [email protected] or telephone at (708)233-5897.  I look forward to a great year together! 


    Mrs. Zayid
