Meet Mika

  • Early Childhood Special Education Certification
  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

Hi! My name is Mika. I am very energetic, organized and active! I graduated with a bachelor of science degree in child and adolescent studies with an emphasis on children's performing arts. A little about me, I am extremely passionate about working with children and building their self confidence. I have been a master dance teacher for children of all ages (2-18) for over a decade now. I have been responsible for more than 70 kids in an hour and have been fortunate enough to see some of them grow up into beautiful young adults. I am CPR certified and am very comfortable driving and multitasking while sitting. I used to run my own children's dance company and dance camps for children of all ages as I am very comfortable with active children who like to move. I believe there is nothing more important than building a child's self-confidence and Read more fostering a positive and creative environment. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions and provide references. I hope to meet you soon :) Warmly, Mika
