Grade Six Teacher
My name is Derek Zukiwsky and I am a grade six teacher here at Mills Haven Elementary. This is my
4th year here. I'll be going back to my Lamont Elementary roots by creating our Mills Haven School
Council initiative. Other roles I have at the school include Division II Literacy Lead,
Instructional Leader, Technology Lead, and Athletics Coordinator. I believe in fostering
relationships with my students and strive to ensure they become more confident individuals.
I am an uncle of two amazing children: my niece and nephew. I have 3 brothers and 1 sister. I have
two cats, a calico named Bazinga and a red tabby named Optimus.
As a lifelong learner, I enjoy reading leadership and curriculum literature. I am a fan of Star
Wars, Avengers, Arrow, WWE, and the Big Bang Theory.
May the force be with you!
