In a letter to the parents at the school, Dr. Ziskind offered her professional experience and her enthusiasm for taking on the Rockets. “I began my teaching career in Chicago, Illinois where I taught for three years. After a move to Los Angeles, I taught with the Los Angeles Unified School District for 12 years in grades K-8th. I then worked in various positions in LAUSD where I had an opportunity to grow and learn the Pre K-12th grade system, before taking on the position of principal. These positions include: math coach, math coach mentor, Categorical Program Coordinator, RTI Expert, Title III Coordinator, and Reading First Coordinator. I then joined the Lynwood Unified School District as an elementary school principal of a PreK-6th grade school. While there my school received the California Gold Ribbon Award and the Title 1 Achievement Award in 2016 from the California Department of Education.”
El Rincon parents and students are all encouraged to meet the new princiapal; take the end of summer and fold it gently into the start of the school year, and blend well.
