Meet Mrs. Zakrocki aka Mrs. Z


Hello! I am so glad you took some time to get to know me! If you did not already know, my real name is Mrs. Zakrocki, but most students and parents call me Mrs. Z. For some reason my last name seems to scare people. I suppose I should blame that on my husband. ūüôā Anyhow, enough about my name, and more about me. I am originally from Indianapolis, Indiana. Yes, I do love the COLTS, BUT my heart really belongs to the Pittsburgh Steelers.¬†¬†(You can blame that one on my husband, as well!) I am also a HUGE Kentucky Basketball fan!¬†¬†¬†

My husband and I moved here in 2007, mostly for the warmer weather, but also because my husband has family here. I am sure many of you already know Mrs. Pat. She is my mother-in-law and works with the Extended Day Program. I have two children, Luke and Emma.  Luke is 6 and is in Kindergarten.  Emma is 4 years old and attends Island Prep.  Oh, I cannot forget about our utterly adorable dog, Toby. My husband, Steve, has his own business (Steven L. Zakrocki, P.L.), He loves working for himself and he specializes in wills, estates and trusts. He is also the current Kiwanis President.
