I hear the students incorporating vocabulary from the dance teacher in their play.

I realize how much i use what you teach. It improves students' reading and math. I was surprised!
Cathy Love, Mountain View Elementary
This class allowed students to use their imagination and creativity. A good supplement to their regular physical education.
Jo Ann Shiroma, Chiefess Kapi'olani
It's a great way for them to interact with one another and feel good about themselves.
Amy Zettel, Pahala Elementary
Active participation--all students were engaged and participated--even my wheel chair student.
