Shout Out to Indianapolis Coordinator – Suzanne Zybert
This week we are featuring Washington Township’s Oasis Coordinator for Tutoring! Suzanne Zybert has been overseeing the program for five years. She is a well-qualified and an experienced educator. She is in her 31st year as an educator, 20 of which have been in Washington Township Schools. She taught for 11 years at the elementary level both in Texas and in Indiana. She then served as an elementary school Principal at Nora Elementary and her current role (year 5) as the Coordinator of Alternative Programs and District Partnerships both in Washington Township.
Suzanne shared this message, “I love being an educator and have appreciated the awesome opportunities to serve students, their families, and our school community.”
Originally from southern Indiana, Suzanne and her husband, Daryle (a Nebraska native), reside in Fishers, Indiana. They have one cat, love college sports and heading to the beach. She told me that she always loved working with Oasis as a building principal and even more so now as the coordinator. Her philosophy matches the Oasis mission because she believes that “developing a love for reading is critical and OASIS does just that and then some. Reading is essential to me both professionally and personally and I love to read a variety of genres to support my overall growth. “
Oasis is thrilled that Suzanne shares her passion with her tutors and her warmth and bubbly personality help build a strong relationship with all her volunteers.
She has many favorite authors that include books for children and for herself. She recommends the book, Love You Forever! And that perfectly sums up her caring and nurturing way of connecting with her students and all who she associates with in her life!
