Mrs. Suzie Zuke

My name is Suzie Zuke and I teach second grade at Ralya Elementary. I graduated from Michigan State University with a double major in Elementary Education with a minor in Language Arts and Child Development. I went on to get my Masters in Literacy Instruction from Michigan State, too. Once a Spartan, always a Spartan! Go Green!

I've been teaching for over 20 years, with most of my time right here in Haslett teaching second grade at Ralya Elementary. I call my classroom the "T.E.A.M. Room" because, Together Everyone Achieves More. Throughout the school year, our T.E.A.M. works to build each other up, support one another, and grow as learners, leaders, and people. I believe in strong family and community connections to make our learning even more impactful. It's not uncommon to have former T.E.A.M. friends come back to support our current learners! Once a T.E.A.M. friend, always a T.E.A.M. friend. 

When I'm not in school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, three sons, and goldendoodle. We love exploring and turning the 'everyday' into an adventure! My family and I spend as much time as possible in northern Michigan. We kayak lakes and rivers, swim, water ski, hike, bike, and take in the beautiful world around us. Life is an adventure and there are so many exciting things to explore!
