Zoë Dillard is trained as a theatre teacher. She has a master's degree from UNCG where she taught as a lecturer in the theatre program here before leaving to teach in the K-12 environment in Fairfax County, Virginia. While Zoë appreciates music of all genres, she especially loves listening to, teaching, and performing in musical theatre. Some of her former students are establishing successful careers. Recently, Zoë returned to Virginia to watch a former student perform. One of Zoë's special memories was performing as a principal character in Fiddler on the Roof.
Having retired from her position in Virginia, Zoë returned to Greensboro with her family and is working as a substitute teacher. When she is not subbing, she loves attending theatrical events, traveling, singing in her church choir, and learning to cook gourmet food. She is happy to be back in Greensboro and loves all of the events we have access to locally. You can tell from her smile that Zoë is happy, optimistic, and fun to know. We're glad she moved back to Greensboro and hope to see her act and to hear her sing.

Thank you, ladies; thank you, readers!
