Zaniac celebrates graduating class of instructors

Zaniac Greenwich will honor its graduating class of instructors, the first to come from the newly opened educational center with a party on June 16.

The event will take place at the Zaniac campus at 644 West Putnam Avenue, Suite 201 with co-owners Flavia Naslausky and Camilia Gazal sharing individual success stories from each of the graduates and awarding the first Zaniac Greenwich College Scholarship.

“Our instructors are the big brothers and sisters that every kid wants to have and look up to. Zaniac Instructors bring into the classroom their broad interests and apply them to teaching STEM based programs and activities,” Ms. Naslausky said in a statement. “Younger children relate to student instructors who make learning fun and show them that one can be cool, smart and hardworking all at the same time. It’s wonderful to watch.”

Zaniac opened for business in December 2013, with a focus on science, technology, eningeering and mathematics (STEM) studies. Instructors are selected through the student employment service (SES) program at Greenwich High School, which services more than 4,500 local high school and college age job seekers. Sponsored by the GHS PTA, SES utilizes a special software supplied by Greenwich-based Student Employment Software, LLC, an award-winning organization that provides on-line systems for schools and communities to manage employment services.

Representatives from SES and the PTA will be on hand at the event to see the celebrate the results of the placement process.

“The great thing about Zaniac Greenwich is that they rely on our students to fill staffing needs and the experiences these students obtain are invaluable. This year alone, they hired 18 of our students. It is simply fantastic,” SES-PTA manager Kate Hohorst said.

The co-owners of Zaniac shared Hohorst’s enthusiasm, speaking highly of the SES placed students.

“SES is an amazing resource in the town of Greenwich and beyond. We were able to successfully staff Zaniac Greenwich within a very short period of time thanks to SES. We received and continue to receive calls from excellent candidates! This is a true private company and public school partnership with incalculable benefits,” Ms. Gazal said.

Zaniac works to make STEM education accessible for children in kindergarten to eighth grade, ensuring they gain the confidence and skills necessary to strengthen their academic performance. To learn more about Zaniac, visit
