Introduction: As an experienced special education teacher, my students often comment that they love my patience and my ability to break down the material that needs to be taught in such a way that is understandable for students at any skill level. I feel my that my knowledge of different learning styles and ways to present material helps students, both young and old, learn and understand concepts more readily. The way I keep students engaged and encouraged while having fun until they make it to the social dance floor, makes me a popular choice.
I love teaching and I love to help people. I have been teaching and helping children since before I was out of high school and have continued to do so throughout my career. Dancing has been a life long passion since 8th grade, so the combination has enabled me to meet many wonderful people, travel the country and to build a community of dancers who have fun together.
