Mrs. Zimmerle

My name is Mrs. Zimmerle (ZIMM-ER-LEE)

I am looking forward to teaching second grade and getting to know you this year! This will be my first full year teaching at Highland Elementary. (I taught for a short time a virtual class at the end of the school year, last year in Harnett County!) We are going to have a "SUPER" year in 2nd grade as we learn and grow together!

I am a mother of 3 boys and am married to my awesome husband of 18 years. We moved to North Carolina from Arizona at the end of 2020 and we just love it here! When I am not teaching I enjoy camping, hiking, going out in the Jeep, and watching movies with my family!

While this is my first year teaching in the classroom it has always been my passion and calling to work with children. I spent 12 years as the Children's Ministries Director working with children from birth to sixth grade, teaching, planning events, running camps, and a year-round basketball program for kids of all ages. I graduated with my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University in 2020, and have a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from Arizona State University. It is my desire to serve my students and their families with the best educational experience possible!  I look forward to growing and learning with you this year!
