Zubia is very intelligent and can discuss topics at many different levels. Her sensitivity is evident as she works with a wide range of students in her computer classes. Zubia has patience to work with the novice students and also the expertise to challenge the students who are more experienced with computers. She always takes time to work with students outside of her class when they need extra help. Zubia has the best interests of her students at heart! These qualities are extremely important in her role as an instructor."
Carolyn Davis, Northern Virginia Community College, VA, USA
"Zubia, a student in my class Fall semester 2005, demonstrated both a desire to learn and the ability to think critically regarding organizational issues regarding innovation. Her insights and contributions in discussions were exemplary. In addition, she worked well in a team to complete both written assignments as well a assist in presenting a case analysis and recommendations as part of a live class session held on a web site."
Linda F. Tegarden, Associate Professor of Strategic Management, Virginia Tech, USA
"Her (Zubia's) Associate Degree work at NVCC resulted in a Magna Cum Laude. She has since been an adjunct instructor and a very effective one at that, at the Loudoun Campus at the NVCC, and has expressed a great joy in the craft of teaching. I expect that she would develop into an unusually talented teacher, given her intelligence, her communication skills, and her love of the classroom expereince."
Arnold J. Bradford, Professor of English, George Washington University, USA.
"I taught Leadership courses with Zubia. She has always been available when requested for extra time to plan lessons together. She offered her exceptional instruction design skills to completely revamp the courses we taught together. Our students were happier and so was the department."
