  I began teaching on Outschool back in 2020.  My background consists of traveling the world, which is my favorite!  I have been trained and guided by top professionals in various industries.  I have two years into completing my degree in Social Science.  Being that I have traveled so much, I respect each of the cultures and am not biased.  I just love all history and want to share it!  I have a background of teaching dance, fitness, tutoring, and homeschool classes combined for over 20-years, but my love is in teaching children!  Yes, I am a professional dancer consisting of working for Carnival Cruise Lines, dancing with singers like Toby Keith, LoCash Cowboys, and Cake.  As you can see I love the arts and music, and add that with my travels, which makes me a World Traveling Fanatic!
Homework Offered
After the class, your child will have a great understanding of sharks hunting for seals, the cage diving boats, South Africa, and more. For fun, have your child draw a shark in action doing something they learned and loved. Whether it be hunting, getting close to a cage diver, trying to catch a seal (or fake seal), breaching, or just a beautiful picture of a shark. Thank you for taking my class!

  Even though this course teaches about sharks, there is nothing scary or graphic in the material taught.  My true focus and message is to show the natural beauty of these gentle creatures. Cage diving is the only known way to view Great Whites safely in the ocean.
