Ms. Karisa Zaprzalka

Welcome to First Grade!  I am excited for a new year at Lugoff Elementary.

I attended the University of South Carolina where I received my Bachelors of Arts in Early Childhood Education.  I taught Pre-K for half a year and this will be my fourth year teaching first grade and third year teaching at Lugoff Elementary.  I am excited to be returning this year.  I have grown to love this place and the children here. 
My househild consists of myself and my two children, Peyton and Carson, ages 4 and 2.  My household is full of laughter and craziness between the two of them. As a family we love to be outdoors and exploring new things.  We take frequent trips to the Riverbanks zoo and to the pool. My daughter, Peyton, will be also attending Lugoff Elementary.  I am excited to be at the same school with her this year.   In my spare time I love to run, read, and try new crafts.  Over the summer I crafted a lot of things for our ladybug themed classroom.
