• Welcome to Ms. Zimowicz's Class! 

     
    I am a Social Studies teacher at Coon Rapids Middle School.  I have been teaching at CRMS since 2002 and am extremely excited to work with middle school students!
    In my classroom, we will actively learn through class discussions, seminars, examining primary and secondary sources, analyzing current events and engaging in problem solving activities.  I hope that your student enjoys the learning activities that we will participate in throughout the year!    
     
    Outside of school, I enjoy canoeing in the Boundary Waters, reading books on my hammock, running with my dog and keeping up with my three children.
