Degrees and Certifications:
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.
