Degrees and Certifications:
Hola! I am Deanna Zalaznik (Señora Z) and I am the Spanish and ELL teacher at Trout Lake School. Trout Lake has an exceptional Spanish program that provides language instruction to elementary, middle, and high school students. This extensive program allows students the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of the language as well as the places and people that speak it.
A little about me: I am a born and raised Oregonian. I can't imagine a more amazing place to call home than right here in the Pacific Northwest. Before coming to Trout Lake I taught Spanish for the Lake Oswego School District. I love doing anything outdoors and I spend a lot of time running, biking, hiking, backpacking and gardening. My favorite running buddy is my dog, Goose. I could not be happier to be a part of the Trout Lake community and I am so looking forward to another year working with the students, families and staff that make this school the wonderful place that it is!
