Laurie Zemlicka

Hello Families!

Welcome to the Learning Lambs preschool classroom!  

My name is Mrs. Laurie Zemlicka and this is my fifth year teaching at Roncalli. I have spent the last four years in the four and five year old JAM preschool room. I am really excited to move to the Learning Lambs room and to have a great year!   I graduated from Northern State University in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Early Childhood and Kindergarten.  I have been married to my husband, Steven, for six years.  We are the proud parents of two boys, Cooper and Landon, and are expecting another little one in January 2018.  We stay busy with camping, our dog Chloe, and working on the family farms.  

Weekly Lesson Plans:

Lesson Plans can be found on PLANBOOK

*When I'm gone on Maternity leave if you have any questions or concerns about the lesson plans, please ask Mrs. Schochenmaier.

Monthly Calendars:

Calendars, especially January-March, events/field trips may be added while I am gone on maternity leave. Mrs. Schochenmaier will commnunicate those with you.
