I have known Ms. Wang for the last fifteen years in our work as dance educators and colleagues. In this time, I have come to know and respect her as a skilled educator and gifted artist. As a dance educator, she brings her expertise as a performer and choreographer to the classroom, allowing her students to truly experience dance as art in education. She has a strong content knowledge, and excellent pedagogical skills.
Her knowledge of dance is both deep and wide, and she is able to communicate this knowledge to her students with a great deal of skill and eloquence. She gives students the opportunity to work creatively, and also provides them with a strong technical framework. She sets high goals and expectations for both herself and her students, and provides the support needed to help her students achieve those goals.
Ms. Wang excels at creating a classroom environment that is safe and supportive, and produces dancers that take creative risks and are confident in their performance abilities. Her dedication to her students goes beyond the school day, extending into the after school hours and weekends.
Not only is Ms. Wang a fine educator and artist, but she is also a joy to work with.
She is an excellent team player, and is highly collaborative, creative and generous in her dealings with both colleagues and students. Her dependability and diligence are noteworthy, and her dedication to the art of dance and dance education is without question.
