"In the past I heard a great deal of grumbling about who did not get a leading role, and there were occasionally tears. Not so with Batya-- she somehow made each student know they had the perfect part for them. It became a total team effort under her direction. She faced each challenge she encountered with joy. The parents were amazed with the final productions."
