Cesar Chavez states that "Students mush have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves and be free." Martin Luther King Jr. states that "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education." My hope is that in my classrooms I facilitate that "thinking and acting" that leads them to be peacemakers.

Love going to Disneyland, spending time with my grandchildren and the children of my parish community Mission Dolores which is my second home.

Ms. Zoll has been active in the SCANS Project, the Works of Art Committee, Project Voice, Student Council, John Adams Graduation Committee and Program Re-design.

She co-edited a book of poetry by homeless adults entitled "Under Dawns eye."
