Mrs. Heather Zurbey
Greetings Third Grade Scholars and Families!
Welcome to 3rd grade, my name is Heather Zurbey and I'm very excited to get to know each of you this year. This is my 7th year at John A. Johnson and my 8th year in Saint Paul Public Schools.
I attended Hamline University for my undergraduate where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and a minor in Elementary Education. I am licensed in both K-6 general education and 5-8 science. I recently received my masters degree from Concordia University St. Paul in Educational Technology.
When I am not at JAJ I enjoying spending time with my family. My husband and I enjoy walking our two dogs, Mak and Dewey. We also enjoying spending time cooking dinner together, watching football, and spending time in our yard. I also enjoying spending time on the soccer field both as a player and a coach.
I enjoy working at JAJ because of the wonderful staff, scholars, families, and community surrounding us. The school offers so many resources for families of JAJ as well as the community of JAJ. My hope for this year is to build strong relationships with each scholar and family I am lucky enough to work with. Together we will be able to provide the best school experience for each child that comes into the classroom; one that allows students to feel successful and confident when learning new things.
