Zuzana Montagne, Middle School ELA
Zuzana Montagne is excited to join the MDCS Middle School team to teach English Language Arts through Reading-Writing Workshop. Her workshop students will be reading books of their choice and developing, drafting, and polishing writing in a variety of genres. Outside of the classroom, Zuzana spends lots of time outside with her family and friends, including her husband Michael, their daughter Monika, and German shepherd Cora. She also enjoys leading kayak programs through Need More Outdoors, a grassroots organization devoted to empowering Swain County youth to pursue outdoor sports. As she anticipates her first year at MDCS, Zuzana is looking forward to many classroom conversations about good books, good writing, and how to go about making the most out of life.
