'I absolutely love my job! Teaching my students brings me such fulfilment. Seeing them improve week in and week out is proof that what we do here and how we teach works! I think I'm a little obsessed. We teach from a safe practice pedagogical approach, constantly talking to our students about correct alignment and weight distribution to minimise risk of injury. The highlight of my year is seeing all those smiling faces in the finale on our final show, just WOW!'
