Mrs. Zisakis grew up in Southern California. She went to two different elementary schools: Pinecrest and Meadows. When she was in the fifth grade, she was in a 4/5 grade class just like the one she teaches. Her favorite place to go on vacation is where there is sun and sand so she can relax by the beach with a good book or swim in the water with the fish. Her family makes her the happiest. She loves spending time with her kids and especially her grandkids who bring her smiles and laughter. Her greatest accomplishment is earning her master’s degree while raising four kids and teaching at Granite full time. Something that people don’t know about Mrs. Z is that she loves to travel and has been to over 15 different countries. She has seen the Tower of London in England, the Eifel Tower in France, the Vatican in Italy, and the Sagrada Familia in Spain.
