What brought you to teaching children:

I love kids’ willingness and eagerness to learn. I enjoy bringing them valuable life skills in the form of dance.

Favorite book, as an adult, and why:

The 4 Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. It’s a wonderful life book that can be applied to all aspects of life and is simple to understand for all ages.

Creative curriculum (something you do to personalize curriculum, annual project…):

It Matters To Me Project: Junior High creates meaningful choreography about something that has impacted them. They learn how to create and interpret movement that sends a message.

Student Choreography Unit: students use content knowledge to create a full scale dance performance with auditions to showcase on stage, in the Spring concert.
