Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Zivilik

My name is Mrs. Zivilik and this is my 15th year at Viking Middle School.   I was the Reading Enrichment teacher for Viking school for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students my first year.  During my second year, I was the 7th grade composition teacher and in my third year I was offered the opportunity to teach 6th grade social studies.  This being a subject that I am passionate about, I was thrilled to accept the opportunity and I am ecstatic about being able to teach it. Prior to teaching at Viking, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in social services at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, where I was also able to play college softball.  After that, I returned to Illinois where I received my teaching certificate from National Louis University.  I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher and I am excited to be living out that dream. I recently received my Masters in Educational Leadership with a Principal's Endorsement at Northeastern University. In my free time, I love playing softball, volleyball, scrapbooking, and spending time with my family. My husband and I love watching our children, Tyler, Brett, and Peyton, grow up.  I am looking forward to a great 2022-23 school year.  Please, contact me anytime if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
