Hello Anderson 6th grade,
My name is Jennifer van der Ziel and I am so excited to be your ELAR teacher this year. This is my fifth year teaching 6th grade and I love it. I grew up in Richardson and I have lived in the area my whole life. I attended University of Texas at Dallas and have lived in Allen for over 10 years. I have been married for 23 years to Peter, who is also a teacher at Allen High School. I have three great kids, Avery, Ali and Jake. We love lacrosse and anything outdoors. We love to take road trips and spend time together as a family.
