2nd & 4th Grade Teacher


My name is Kayla Panzner. I am so excited to be a part of the Zion team! Throughout my life God has been teaching me to trust Him in His perfect timing and plans for me. This has brought me to Zion where I am blessed with the opportunity to be a part time 2nd and 4th grade Reading and Math Teacher.

I have a great passion for teaching and I work hard to engage students in learning through high-energy and hands-on lessons. I am a Saginaw Valley State University grad where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I am planning to continue on to finish my graduate degree in the near future, but I’m just taking some time right now to enjoy my two little ones as they are growing way too fast.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy creating Pinterest-inspired crafts, reading, hanging out with my chickens, walking the aisles of Hobby Lobby and camping with my husband, Daniel, and our two kids, Connor and Olivia. I look forward to a great school year teaching and sharing God’s Love with our students here at Zion.
