Mrs. Zacharko

Grade: 1st Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Zacharko's 1st Grade Class! My name is Sara Zacharko or Mrs. Z and this is my 7th year at Shawsheen Elementary and my 6th year teaching 1st grade. 


This summer, Mr. Z and I welcomed our twins, Easton and Hudsyn. I'm currently on maternity leave but look forward to being back in classroom later this year and meeting all of you!


Outside of the classroom, I love to spend time with time with my family, our dog, Winston, and friends. I also love to run, bike, and cheer on the CSU Rams, Rockies, Broncos, Avalanche, and Nuggets!


I am so grateful to be a part of such a great community, school district, and to be able to call myself a Shawsheen Thunderbird! I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!
