Children involved with the Arts
With an early and sustained relationship with the Arts, children can experience the joy of creation, learn to enjoy differences, and learn non-verbal ways to express thoughts, knowledge and feelings.
In a recent Canadian study involving 7,000 grade1-6 students, involvement in the Arts did not take away from Language and Mathematics scores. In fact, students involved in the Arts scored higher than students who were not involved in the Arts.
The Arts do not just produce students with better grades, they can also have a positive impact on other parts of our lives as well - the emotional, physical, social, and even spiritual aspects of our learning and humanity.
Let me take this opportunity to tell you a few things about myself. I participated in rhythmic gymnastics from age 8 to 18. During this time I attended the World Championship in Tallinn, Estonia and also traveled internationally to perform.
At age 18 I began dancing at Studio P.A.V.A.S., studying Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Tap, and competing in Acrobatics.
I studied at Sheridan College, enrolled in their ECE program.
Most recently, I have taught Jazz, Acrobatics, Tap, Lyrical, Ballet and preschool dance at Studio P.A.V.A.S.
I also managed and taught the preschool arts program, building curriculum, writing assessments, and incorporating dance, music, art and drama.
I am looking forward to starting this exciting new chapter in my life.
