About Ms. Zallaps

Hello! I am excited to be working at Highwood Hills this year. I am one of the teachers providing special education services. I have been working as a teacher for 13 years and as a paraprofessional prior to that. I earned an undergraduate degree in business and music from Minnesota State University Moorhead and received a graduate degree from the University of St. Thomas to teach special education (k-12, EBD).  I have taught at the high school, middle school, and elementary levels. This is my first year at Highwood Hills and am so happy to be part of such a wonderful school. I love helping students build skills in academics and social emotional learning. I encourage students to learn about some of the things that they are interested in as they go on their educational journey. I enjoy spending time in nature, walking my dog-shaped sidekick, reading, arts and crafts (knitting, sewing, drawing, etc.), drinking coffee, and am a member of a mushroom club.
