About Me:
Welcome to sixth grade! My name is Laurie Zaza and this will be my sixth official year teaching Language Arts! I started my career in the Dallas area teaching 6th and 7th grade. After staying home for a few years, I re-entered the world of education and have been a long term substitute for 6th Grade Language Arts the past two years here at CRMS. I am thrilled to be back in the classroom, and  I absolutely LOVE  teaching reading and writing.

I have a Bachelor of Arts from Texas A&M and a Masters of Education from the University of North Texas.  I was born and raised in Austin, but fortunately went off to school at Texas A&M,(  WHOOOOOOOOOP!) where I met my husband. Now we are raising 3 Aggie children,  who are in the 5th , 9th, and 12th grades ( Go Vipers!).   I am glad to be back in Austin, and enjoy reading, running with my dog Rocky, and eating out at fun places on the weekends.

I am looking forward to having a wonderful year of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and LEARNING!
