My name is Julissa Zarich and I am the prekindergarten teacher at Martin Bluff Elementary. I have a passion for helping my students reach their goals. I have over nine years of teaching experience. I believe that teamwork makes the dream work and strive to support everyone on my team. I am certified to teach early childhood and am trained to work with students that have a variety of needs. My passions are helping students learn despite any obstacles that come their way. I believe that the focus should be on developing the whole child and helping them grow in every aspect. I love to watch my students grow! I am happily married and have two girls. We love to go to the beach and play outdoors. I love to travel and love to learn about other cultures from around the world. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends as well as reading a good book!
