Mrs Z IB award

We are so proud of Mrs. Danielle Zdunich for being awarded the honor of IB Educator of the Year, Primary Years Program, by the California Association of IB Schools!

Mrs. Z is a beloved member of the McKinley community, and represents the high quality McKinley teachers that are dedicated to giving our children a strong foundation in understanding, cultural awareness, and inquisitiveness. Mrs. Z is an exemplary example to her students, a strong leader, and truly embodies the principles of an IB educator. We’re so lucky to have her!

Ms.Z recognition

“I love working at McKinley.  I love the IB program and think that it provides a unique and wonderful education allowing children to gain insight into the broader world around them.

I am a life long learner, and I aspire to create life long learners in my classroom.  I want my students to leave me with a desire to learn, a respect for all people, and appreciation for the differences they see between and amongst one another.  I want my students to feel that they can accomplish most anything if they set their minds to it.” – Mrs. Zdunich, 2nd/3rd Grade

Congratulations, Mrs. Z.!!
