Since the age of 2, dancing has been a huge part of my life. It has been an escape from reality for me. Whenever I am stressed out, I dance it out. Now that I am a high school teacher, I am sharing my stress relief wisdom with my students.
After 7th period, we have Enrichment every day. Enrichment is meant as a time for clubs to meet and for students to get extra help when needed. In my classroom, Enrichment is 40 minutes of therapy for many of my students, past and present, who find their daily lives riddled with drama. They come to me to talk and when the talking doesn’t work, I pull out my ipod, select my “Dance It Out” playlist and we Dance.
