Life outside being a wizard girl

July 25, 2013

When we run out on the court in our white heeled boots, curled hair, and sequins costumes, it is hard to believe that being a Wizard Girl isn’t the only job we have.  As a surprise to many fans, the girls you see smiling and dancing on the Verizon Center court are also software engineers, project managers, broadcast journalists, dietitians, marketing directors, among many other notable professions.  For me, I spend my life outside of the Verizon Center in an elementary school classroom as a Special Education teacher, teaching students with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, dyslexia, autism, and emotional disabilities. 

My day begins at 8:00am when tons of smiling faces burst open the classroom door.
