Books vs. Devices

With the proliferation of cellphones and other handheld devices, we might begin to worry that our teens don’t or won’t read anymore.  Our English teacher, Sue Likkel, has written her thoughts on that in this week’s ZLO blog post.  Click here to read it!

“Grateful for a fine summer day and the wonderful friends my children have made at ZLO. The parents I’ve met are delightful folks who are all deeply invested in their children’s spiritual, educational and emotional well being.” – Kristin Uhrig

I’m trying to think of what to add to this.  This pretty much sums up what we want to support here – parents deeply invested in their children’s lives.  Us instructors – we’re on YOUR side, serving YOUR family, not an educational system invented by someone else, administered by people who have never met you.
