Mrs. Zika is a third grade teacher for Arkansas Elementary School.  She received her BS degree in Elementary Education from Bemidji State University.  She was inspired to become a teacher by playing school when she was a little girl and from her master teachers that taught her while in school.  Her most memorable experience of teaching is when she is gifted by a student each day.

Mrs. Zika’s favorite thing about teaching is when she has helped a child in an area of their life and also shares the joy to be there.

She has a husband that teaches at the high school.  They also have 4 kids.

Mrs. Zika thinks that everyone needs a hobby.  Some of her hobbies are gardening, working with the soil, sports, reading and spending time with her family.  She also has special projects in her class.  Some are: Readers Theater, Native  American projects, and simple machines.  Other special activities she is involved in are: belonging to the Optimist Club, being a Girl Scout leader, and helping out at church.
