About Gianna Zenere
I earned my Bachelor's degree from Illinois State University in English Education with an endorsement in Middle School Education. I discovered my love of teaching through my mom, who was an educator for nearly 40 years! She taught me confidence, common sense, and self-worth and that's what I hope to teach my students... along with the mechanics and creativity of writing. I am just starting my career in this field but I hope to one day be half the woman/teacher my mom is.
