“I am pleased to tell you that as of the end of August I am now the new modern dance teacher at Jackson High School in their School of the Arts program. Every day I teach, I realize how grateful I am for all the things that you and the other teachers have taught me during my time at Kent State. I had never taken a modern dance class prior to college so I truly credit being able to teach (91 students) modern technique to the Dance Division."
