Recreational/Competitive

I am fortunate to have been placed on the path of teaching long before I realized that teaching is my passion. I have been working at Gotta Dance Inc. for seven years, where I grew up dancing on the competitive team. I was later asked to return and teach in both the recreational and competitive programs.

Throughout this journey, I have discovered that I feel most fulfilled when I can participate in and contribute to the growth of young people. I pride myself in creating a space for students that is inclusive as well as educational. I recently received my degree from University of Toronto, where I specialized in English Literature.

Currently, I am Teacher Candidate at York University and will be graduating in 2023 with a Bachelors of Education. It is truly an honour to be a part of the growing Gotta Dance community. We are a family of both students and teachers who are constantly learning and growing! For this reason, Gotta Dance Inc. has become a home to me, and I am thankful to be a part of such a wonderful team!
