English Teacher / Yearbook Business Manager

Favorite Quote: “Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless.” – St. Teresa of Calcutta


After growing up in Lincoln, Nebraska, Mrs. Zoz has dedicated twenty of her twenty-five years in education to Peoria Notre Dame. She decided to enter into education because she enjoyed working with high school students and watching their faith and knowledge grow throughout their high school years. Some of Mrs. Zoz’s favorite parts about PND are the Catholic atmosphere, colleagues, and students. She has felt her own faith grow by attending daily Mass. When not teaching or moderating yearbook, Mrs. Zoz enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, walking, swimming, sewing, traveling, and gardening her flowers. An interesting fact about Mrs. Zoz is that she lived in Japan for three years!
