Teaching is my life and passion. Whether in academia or the dance world, I have always been - and continue to be - a teacher.
I began teaching jazz and ballet at the age of 16 in my home-state of Indiana. During high school I tutored a wide range of students from 1st grade to 11th grade through National Honors Society. After graduating with 2 B.A. degrees from Indiana University, I spent a year and a half teaching (and performing) ballroom and Latin dance to students ranging from the ages of 13 to 91!
Yet I missed being a student myself within an academic setting and set off to grad school on a full scholarship. During my time in grad school, I was given the opportunity to teach my own freshman and sophomore level courses at Indiana University because of my extensive background as a teacher. I did this for 2.5 years until I finished my thesis and graduated with an M.A. in Human Geography.
I have come to Colorado to take a break from academia before continuing my education. The mountains create a magnificent writing environment, and I seek new inspiration for future writing endeavors.
