It didn't take long for every child in the class to catch on to Karen's fun and energetic vibe! I was very surprised at Karen's professionalism and also with the knack that she had with our toddlers. She instructed the class in an upbeat manner and treated the children with respect. She was also knowledgeable in age appropriate practice.                                                                                                                                                                              Karyn-Ann Atkins, Lead Instructor   Crickets Little Preschool, Sweet Peas, LLC        Jackson, WY
As a certified Montessori teacher, I know how important movement is for children to learn effectively. We have many lessons related to different cultures in our classroom, and now have learned dances from some of those places as well!  I have noticed our children are much more willing to be the center of attention.  The fact that Karen is a mother prepared her for handling a class full of active young ones in a positive way.               Dee Buckstaff, Director      Montessori School of the Tetons       Jackson, WY
Once I participated in the classes with the children I understood the classes offered so much more and focused on many of the important developmental areas including social emotional, cognitive, gross motor and executive functioning.I feel the classes focus on important developmental domains in a fun and creative way.  Being able to move and express feelings and understanding through your body is exactly how children should learn.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Betsy Carlin, Owner     EC Consulting       Jackson, WY
Karen does an amazing job at providing predictability, which preschool aged children really need.  I really appreciated the overlap of music and specific activities so that we all knew what to expect and how to get class started. I cannot say enough how beneficial and fun movement classes are to a classroom's curriculum!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Adrienne Coca, Montessori Teacher     Children's Learning Center       Jackson, WY
At first I was unsure how the children would respond to the movement classes.  Once the classes started the children LOVED IT!!! Karen did an awesome job of  incorporating movement into our everyday curriculum.                                                                                                                                                                                   Heather Menke, Lead Instructor    Children’s Learning Center       Jackson, WY
