    What teachers are saying about Mr. Zanartu
    "Mr. Zanartu recently taught 4 lessons in my classroom.  The lessons were highly engaging with lots of opportunities for all of the students to be involved. There was physical movement, singing, and puppets to reinforce the main ideas of the lessons.  The students looked forward to his visits.”
    -Mrs. Riley, 1st Grade
    "Mr. Zañartu’s are great. The kids are engaged and it was right at their level of understanding. They looked forward to your lesson every day. Better yet, they have carried over what they learned into their behavior in the classroom and on the playground."
    -Anne Whittington, 2nd Grade
    "Mr. Zanartu came in last week to work with my third grade class. He incorporated role playing, song, and movement to teach them how to handle a variety of situations relevant to making good choices for third graders. This was most helpful to my group as the majority of them need such exposure to help them in this upcoming year  as Avaxat citizens to make smart decisions and use appropriate behaviors. The power point videos were engaging. I hope he comes back to reinforce the song and movements with them and use throughout the year." 
    -Ms. D’Arezzo, 3rd Grade

    I appreciate you taking the time to be with my student, Arianna. She was having a rough morning and could not stop crying. The letter was a perfect idea. I appreciate all you do, seriously! You make my job easier! THANK YOU FELIPE!
