About Z. PRoudlock

A former teacher and department head, Z. Proudlock graduated from York University with degrees in French and history. She went on to study at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Education. Over the course of more than thirty-three years as an educator, Proudlock taught history, library, law and French. The last 25 years were with the Peel District School Board where her love of reading led her to work in the school Library as a Teacher Librarian. She will never forget the many wonderful people she worked with as well as the students in each of her schools. Finally, she thanks her collegues who graciously provided their own thoughts. Without them, this book would not have been possible.
