• Welcome to reading at Union Park!

      • My name is Tracy Zieska and this is my second year at Union Park. I graduated from Saint Cloud State with my undergrad in Elementary Education. I then went on to receive my master's degree from NAU in Reading. I was in the Apache Junction School District prior to Deer Valley, and I have 14 years' experience working as a teacher!  

        My job is to help at-risk readers through pull out and push in intervention lessons. I work primarily with K-3 students. I design explicit, systematic, multi-sensory instruction around my student's deficits.  I work with the students' homeroom teacher to provide optimal reading support to "catch them up" in reading. I want my students to love reading as much as I do and to be successful. I want reading to be natural, enjoyable, and stress-free for students. Throughout our time together, I will provide students with effective strategies and support to help them achieve their goals.

        I have a true passion for both reading and my students and I am so excited to work with your young readers! Please feel free to contact me as needed at  tracy.zieska@dvusd.org.  We will have a great year together!

        -Mrs. Zieska
