Mrs. Sandra Zbylut
My name is Sandra Zbylut and I am a 5th grade teacher at Glenside Middle School. I am a National Board Certified Teacher and excited to be starting my 31st year of teaching. I have taught 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade at QueenBee School District 16 for 29 years.
I was born and raised in Chicago before moving out to the suburbs in my late teens. I first decided to pursue teaching in high school where I taught in a preschool that was run by the high school. I consider myself a life-long learner and have a high regard for education. I hold an Associate in Arts from the College of DuPage, a Bachelor’s in Arts from National Louis University, and a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from St. Xavier University. I pursued an Endorsement in English Language Learners from Northern University to add to my certifications in Regular and Special Education.
Teaching is a major part of my life but my family is the other part. I have been married for over 20 years and a proud mother to a 19 and 16 year old. I love spending time with my family cooking, gardening, playing games, and singing and dancing. When I’m not teaching or being mom, I love to read and watch movies, especially cartoons and old movies. I believe we learn from our mistakes, and you can do anything if you put your mind to it.
