Why do I teach at ZLO?

I’d like to expand on the comment posted a few weeks ago and tell you why I very much enjoy teaching at ZLO.  Please connect to my blog by clicking here.

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!

It’s the parents. It’s the kids. It’s the PEOPLE!

Seen today on FB:

“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.

Sophomore English now on the schedule

Lunch and Tour April 15

Please join us for a tour of ZLO on April 15, 2014, followed by some information and lunch we’re providing for free (pizza, salad, cookies). We LOVE families and your kids are welcome to accompany you. We’ll have some supervised gym or playground time for kids old enough for that, and babies and young toddlers can stay with mom and dad. Older kids may want to listen to our info session or sit in on part of a class.

Bring your questions! Please RSVP to Bethany Pellerin: 393-1092 to be sure we’ll have enough food for all.
