Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Syndi Zimmerman and I have been a teacher in New Albany for the past seventeen years. I was a first grade teacher for many years and now work with students as an academic intervention teacher. I am excited to continue supporting students at The Primary School with math and reading in first, second and third grade!
I knew I wanted to be a teacher at a very young age. I played “teacher” growing up in our basement with a large chalkboard in Ashland, Ohio. I attended Bowling Green State University and earned my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and two master’s degrees. One master’s degree is in Reading Education and the other master’s degree is in Gifted Education. I moved to Columbus shortly after obtaining my degrees.
Outside of school, I stay busy with my family. My husband and I enjoy our roles as parents. Our son, Chancellor, is in first grade at The Primary School. Chancellor enjoys gymnastics and going to the pool. Our little girl, Harper, is turning three in September. She is always on the go trying to keep up with Chancellor. She loves the pool and gymnastics just like her big brother!
During the summer, we were on the go with family activities. We went to the Columbus Zoo and Zoombezi Bay every week. We played outside in the sprinkler and visited the pool to stay cool. You could also find us at the trampoline park and bowling alley. We took our annual vacation to Cedar Point and enjoyed the beach, amusement park and water park. Chancellor and Harper loved all of the rides and water slides! We can’t wait to go on even more roller coasters next year!
Being a teacher and mom takes most of my time, but I also love to read when I can. I also enjoy taking walks and spending time outside. Summer is my favorite time of year. Some of my other favorites are below.
