Tots 2 Assistant Guide
My name is LB and I am so excited to begin my journey at Athena with Tots 2! I have been working with young children for about 3 years and this will be my first year in the Montessori environment.
Since graduating from UT Austin with a BFA in dance in 2017, I have been teaching dance and creative movement to young children ages 18 months to 10 years old in various environments. With Ms. Joan Wolfe as my beloved mentor, I have been teaching at Ballet Austin in their young children’s dance program and I have also taught children in various after school arts programs. I am passionate about using creative movement techniques and neuromuscular movement patterns to guide young children in their development. From my experience, I have learned how to follow the creative lead of my students and guide them in their own exploration. I’m so eager to bring my passion for teaching creativity to Athena!
I have been dancing my whole life and in my free time I enjoy doing anything movement-based. I love yoga, hiking, reading, and cooking. I also work on my own choreography with my performance group, TC Superstar. I strongly believe that we as teachers have as much to learn from students as they have to learn from us, and I am excited to learn and grow with these students and the Athena community.
