"I have loved teaching from a young age. I started teaching dance lessons at 15 years old and haven't stopped teaching since!:) I taught dance through my 20's and then I homeschooled my 2 children through middle school; I used different techniques with each child, appropriate to their individual learning styles. I also taught various classes at our homeschool co-op, including Music, Art and Science. I started my own music and movement class that I have been teaching at various schools in the DFW area for the past 20 years. I have tutored my own children, as well as a number of neighborhood children, in English(including grammar, spelling and writing), Math, History, Geography, Bible, and Economics.

I am interested in getting to know my students and discovering what their individual needs and preferences are; then creating a learning environment that best suits them.
