ALL ABOUT MS. ZAVALA

My name is Suzy Zavala and I was raised in La Puente, California. I have taught in LAUSD for 28 years in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, first grade and third grade. I attended Loyola Marymount University where I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in European Studies with an emphasis in French. I spent time in Paris, France as an exchange student where I was fortunate to attend the University of Paris, Sorbonne. In 2018 I achieved National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist. I enjoy travel, coffee, spending time with family and friends, and seeing smiles on children’s faces!

GLASSELL PARK KINDERGARTEN TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

We believe that respectful, caring bonds with children and their families are vital for a wonderful kindergarten experience.

We believe that each child has unique strengths and various levels of language learning experiences. We believe that instruction should be differentiated to provide challenge and support for all children to build on success.

We believe in providing rich experiences in language, mathematics, the sciences, the arts and storytelling through the Constructivist Approach.

We believe that the kindergarten experience must nurture social-emotional skills in each child and create joyful school memories.
