About Me

  • Hello Everyone!

    I have been at BIS for five years and began teaching the Fall of 2000.  I love teaching 6th grade Social Studies and I would love teaching 5th grade Social Studies, too.  I prefer teaching with games as I feel learning is not always acquired by listening.  Competition gives a student the drive to learn without the student even realizing it.

    I view my students as future adults and try to instill in them good values and good citizenship.  I believe in a community working together to raise and teach our future adults.  Our youth sees enough of the negative things on various forms of media and need to come to the understanding that entertainment is one thing, real-life behaviors are another.  With parents and educators working together, they will understand in time.

    Please feel free to contact me about student work, grades, or any issues that may arise during the school year.  My contact number is 512-772-7450 xt 306.  Or, you can email me at pzion@bisdtx.org.

    I currently offer tutoring after school on Mondays and Thursdays, but that might change when I begin UIL coaching.

    Many blessings to you all as you raise our future citizens. 

Ms. Zion
