I am a recent 2014 graduate with a BSE and a Dance Education minor. I completed the requirements for a dance minor from Elmhurst College in 2011 and have since then focused my attention on arts integration into high school English classrooms. It is my goal, to use the strategies and ideas from my arts integration courses and independent studies, to offer my future students a more meaningful education by allowing them to express themselves in more creative ways. With my dance experience I hope to do coaching and possibly teach my own dance courses someday to expand student knowledge about genres of dance that often go unnoticed, such as Improvisation. What I truly hope to do is experience options within the dance world that allow me to use my own talents and passion. My heart has always truly been in the arts and I hope there will always be a place for it.
