I grew up in Jackson, Mo. I have two older brothers. I had the typical Midwest upbringing. Attended and graduated from Mineral Area College and Southeast Missouri State University.
After college, I started teaching at the private Lutheran School, which I attended as a child. Then, moved to Farmington, MO. where I taught middle school science and coached high school girl's basketball.
From there, I moved on to Mineral Area College, where I was the Head Women's Basketball Coach.
In 2000, I married my husband, John Zieba and we moved to Madisonville, KY. I began teaching at BSMS. Had great experiences there and then moved to JMMS. We have two wonderful children, Kensley and Kaitlyn Zieba, who currently attend James Madison Middle School.
We have a dog named Kona and a cat named Isadora.
