K. Zimmermann

I was born and raised in Deming.  I attended Chaparral Elementary as a child, 1st grade through 6th grade. I graduated from Deming High School.  I got married and had two amazing children before I decided to go to college and get my teaching degree.  I graduated from WNMU in 2003 and began my teaching career in May of the same year.  I went on to get my Master of Arts in Elementary Education, Curriculum and Instruction at NMSU.  I taught for 19 years before I was fortunate enough to become principal of Chaparral Elementary  in 2022.
