Talima Andrews, B.A. in Child Development, Spelman College. Talima began her teaching
career over seven years ago in the Atlanta Public School System as a first grade teacher
where she received a grant to develop an after school ballet dance program. After two
years with Atlanta Public Schools, Talima spent the next three years as a first and
second grade teacher with the DeKalb County School System where she implemented a ballet,
jazz and tap after school dance program. Her loves for teaching and dance afforded her
the opportunity to move back to New York to teach dance to kindergarten through third
graders at a charter school in Crown Heights. This fall, Talima will be attending NYU for
a M.A. in Dance Education for grades K12.
Currently, Talima works as a teacher at AF Crownheigts Elementary school.
