Kasia Williams began ballroom dancing when she was 11 and continued throughout her high school career in Poland, where she lived.
As Williams got older, she realized her skill level was behind her age group, so dancing became just a hobby for her.
Williams did not leave the ballroom behind when she moved to the United States at age 18 and joined a dance troupe. She has practice once a week and said she hopes to balance her dance career with eaching in the upper school math department.
Williams is looking forward to teaching her Algebra II, Topics in Calculus and Statistics and Introduction to Calculus Honors classes.
“I don’t know what to expect,” Williams said. “I don’t know if my teaching approach will reach all the students. I always like the moment when they go ‘ooh, I get it!’”
