Love my instructors

I love my instructors. One of them had a private lesson booked Saturday, plus an hour and a half class. She showed up to teach even though she was sick. I realize that showing up sick to places where there are healthy people is frowned upon (I often frown upon it). But the fact is, I wasn't available to teach her class or her private lesson. And none of the other instructors could take her place either because it is a level 2 class and she is the only other instructor (other than myself) that can teach level 2. If she had not show up, the classes would have been canceled and a ton of refunds would have had to be issued or attempts at rescheduling into a fully booked studio where that is often impossible. In short, unhappy students/clients may have accumulated quickly had she not show up to teach.

Today one of my instructors showed up even though she was sick all week and just now starting to feel better. She said she only showed up because she remembers that when I was the only instructor (and HER instructor) that I always taught no matter what, even if I was sick. And she appreciated that I never canceled any of her classes to be out sick. And this class was part of her teacher training, so as a student instructor she can't complete the training program if she misses teaching one of her classes (I guess she could, but it could set back her training by as much as 6 to 7 weeks).

I'm so grateful for these girls. Because the business would fall apart if they didn't show up when they were scheduled to show up. And they DO show up.
