Apple Picking!  

    Hi! I'm Mrs.Kathryn Zachary                 

    Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am looking forward to working with you and your child! It's going to be a year full of fun, learning and lots of adventures and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us!
    A little about me:
    This will be my 18th year of teaching! I have taught grades K-5 at various points in my career, teaching first grade at CDM for 10 years. I absolutely love teaching first grade! It is my mission to instill a love for lifelong learning! 
    I have lived in San Diego since graduating with my Masters Degree in Education from Azusa Pacific University in 2001. I have an amazing family who takes up most of my free time. We enjoy all San Diego has to offer with hiking, beach, and being outdoors enjoying this amazing weather! I can't wait to get to know your children and all the things they love! Here are a few of my favorites! 
     A Few of My Favorites;
    Color: pink, black, orange
    Season: I love fall!
     Food: Board and Brew sandwiches, salads, Urban Plates 
    Drink: Coffee, Water, Tea 
    Sport: Football (A big Steelers Fan!) 
    Music: Country 
    Communication: I will send emails weekly or every other week as needed with any hot topics in the classroom! In addition, I will discuss ClassDojo at Back to School Night, which I use to communicate and put pictures up of your kiddo and all they will be learning througout the year!  If you are new to Carmel Del Mar this year, please refer to Carmel Del Mar's school website with important updates from the PTA and Principal Julie Lerner.
