I’m Shelby Hall, a passionate teacher and dancer! By day, I teach 8th grade English and math, and I teach adult ESL two nights a week! I also coach the dance team at my school and choreograph the school musicals.
I have been teaching for three years as a certified teacher, but I’ve been teaching dance and choreographing for over 10 years. I specialize in teaching dance to kids with special needs.

My favorite part is that “lightbulb moment” when students work so hard and finally get it! I love helping students realize their potential!

I begin with an overall assessment process to gauge our starting point. I also make sure I take time to get to know students and build rapport. Whether I’m teaching dance or tutoring, I want to make sure my students are comfortable. From there, we work on making improvements and building confidence!
I hold a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in education and an Oklahoma teaching certification. I have been teaching for three years. As for dance, I started dancing at age 4 and originally attended Oklahoma City University’s prestigious dance program before discovering my passion for teaching. I have choreographed four musicals and have taught dance to students with disabilities at the high school level. I currently coach a middle school dance team.
I was always going to be a professional dancer, but when I taught dance to kids with special needs, I discovered my love for teaching! I changed my major to education and I know I made the right decision.
I have worked with students at elementary, middle, and high school levels. I also teach adults.
