Mrs. Finn

Welcome to my class!

My name is Zuzana Finn and I will be your English Language Arts teacher. I am truly thrilled about the opportunity to spend this year with you!

Let me share a little about myself. I have been teaching for over twelve years: third and fourth grade in Harlem, New York and Laveen, Arizona; sixth grade Language Arts in Surprise, Arizona; and classical music and English language & literature in Slovakia. 

I completed two Master's degrees: M.A. in English Literature (Comenius University) and M.S. in Teaching (Fordham University). I am highly qualified to teach middle grades English Language Arts, and hold a gifted endorsement. 

I am a huge book nerd; my favorite genre is contemporary fiction. At my home, I have a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, housing about 9,000 books. I have to admit, that this is my favorite spot in the entire house. Aside from reading, I enjoy listening to music, mostly classical and jazz. In addition, I'm also fond of traveling, and have visited about 20 countries so far, from Australia, Asia, and Europe to the Caribbean Islands. While traveling, I get the opportunity to learn about new cultures and languages, and try new foods.  I speak several languages; I am fluent in Slovak and Czech, with some basics in Russian, Polish and German.
