“My experience working with BAZOOF! has been 100% positive. Among the diverse abilities my students present, there is an opportunity for each one to be successful. My students have learned skills in writing, editing and publishing. They have felt pride and professionalism. They have enjoyed real-life experience beyond the confines of the classroom. Personally, my Language Arts program has been enhanced and I enjoy the opportunity to work with BAZOOF! each year. The skills that they have learned and their copies of the magazine will endure long past their grade 6/7 year.”
