Hello! My name is Katie Zieba and I am thrilled to be starting my fourth year at Vista PEAK!
I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota and have been a Colorado resident for about 4.5 years. I graduated from Winona State University in 2007 with a BA in International Political Science and Global Studies, and went on to obtain my teaching license and Master of Arts in Education from Augsburg College in St. Paul, Minnesota. I have been teaching social studies for about 6 years and I also have experience teaching English Language Development classes to adults and youth new to our country.This year I will be teaching Geography, AP Human Geography and Student Leadership.
It is my goal to instill values of leadership, global curiosity, and civic activism into our coursework this year. My goal as an educator is to allow your student to grow as a person and as a productive citizen. I hope to inspire understanding, a drive to help others, and a realization of their power to influence the world for good.
In my free time, I can be found in my vegetable garden, playing with my dogs Frank and Penny, or snowboarding and hiking the mountains with my husband, Nic.
