360-855-3520Home Phone360-466-3508BIOMy name is Brenna Zavala and I was born in Mount Vernon, Washington and I attended La Conner High School. From there, I attended Central Washington University on a track scholarship and received my BA in elementary education. I received my Master's of Education degree from Lesley University. I taught 6th grade in the Darrington School District for three years and then began teaching at Cascade Middle School. I have been teaching English and social studies at Cascade Middle School since 2000. Coaching track is one thing I really enjoy and have been coaching for 12 years. Spending time with my family and friends is something I always look forward to. I am married with four busy boys, ranging in age from 17-10. If you see me outside of school, I am sure it will be at a sporting event. During football season I watch around five games a week.
