Ms. Cheryl was born and raised in the capital district. She started dancing at age 3 and danced for 10 years. Cheryl’s childhood dream was to become a dance teacher, and she was thrilled when Ms. Katie asked her to assist. Cheryl is a certified elementary education teacher pre-k through grade 6, and literacy from birth through grade 6. She taught for 9 years before becoming a mother and deciding to stay home to raise her children. Cheryl currently volunteers whenever possible in her children’s school, and is also a substitute teacher there. She resides in Guilderland with her husband and two children.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, yoga and walking. Cheryl has so much fun assisting Ms. Katie! She loves watching the children grow and see their personalities shine!
