About Miss Alicia

I have been working with Zumbrota-Mazeppa schools since 2012. I have taught four-year-old Learning Readiness preschool and early childhood special education in the past. Currently, I am an early childhood special education teacher providing special education services to students ages three through five in our inclusive general education classrooms. I love being a part of Zumbrota-Mazeppa's early childhood programs and getting to know the children and their families! I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education. I live in the country near Goodhue with my husband and my son. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, playing cards, reading, and baking. I am looking forward to working with your family this year!
