pole kitten inverted trick

So Grateful!

Wow. Just...wow. I just called ahboodahbee, a long time friend of mine. His ex also happens to be one of my students in the Sunday night class. Well, said student went to pick up their son from him right after class so they chatted a bit about my class. He just relayed to me what she said. Among the compliments, "She's a really good teacher" and "I have a lot of respect for her."

I'm so deeply humbled and overjoyed simultaneously. I mean I have a little experience teaching dance and pole work before these two class series. But not a lot. As a new teacher, I couldn't have been paid a greater compliment. Come to think of it, I really do love pole dancing and I really enjoy people and my learning disabilities have helped me be a much more compassionate and much better teacher because I know how hard it can be to learn something completely new and different. Maybe...just maybe, ahboodahbee was right when he said I've found my calling.
