My name is Carissa Zachar and I am a proud second grade teacher! I grew up in Minnesota and graduated from Iowa State University. I have been teaching for nine years and love getting to work with the amazing students at Pearce Elementary. When I'm not teaching, I love to explore the outdoors, spend time with friends and family, and travel. I am married to my husband, Taylor, and we have one son, William (1 year old), and a dog, Della (7 years old). You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
