REVIEWS:  


Many repeat students, clients and referrals are testimony to Zola’s ongoing popularity!


 
“I have had the pleasure of working with Zola for the past 12 years …during which time she has worked in various capacities including teaching, performing and directing small theatrical plays.  She is kind, enthusiastic and always well prepared.  Zola communicates extremely well with her students. ..Her classroom and management skills are excellent and she is able to handle large groups of children easily. …As one of the most popular teachers at (this) Center, her programs are usually oversubscribed….Zola is very easy to work with and she would be an asset in a variety of positions.” 

--Barrie Keller (Cultural Arts Director, Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center of Greater Boston)
