Joanne Zukowski
Canaan - Kindergarten and Canaan Webmaster
34 years of service
I never considered teaching at Canaan a job, but an extension of my daily life, or my hobby. I began my career when Canaan opened in September of 1968. Fresh out of college, I was ready to conquer the world. I took me 34 years to conquer the INTERNET and I have my present principal, Mr. Michael Ventura to thank for that.

My poor children became night owls as I kept them up very late from birth to share "quality time" with them so I was able to continue teaching. They still stay up all night and have "quality time" with whomever they are with now.

I would like to thank my former principals for allowing me the freedom to develop little minds using my unique "Z" techniques. Now it is time to retire my Kazoo and say goodbye to my little Z's at Canaan. finally say hello to my high school sweetheart and husband of almost 33 years. It is time to share what is left of life together.
