I am a beginner poler that goes by the name Bad Teacher. I teach Pre K as my 7-3 but my alter ego comes out when I’m in the studio. I have been poling for 2 years. In the beginning I never would have thought that I would make it this far. In my mind there were so many obstacles to overcome. From being plus size, having a fear of falling to listening to others thoughts on pole dancing, the fact that I’m still doing it is an accomplishment. Throughout these 2 years I have fallen in love with pole. When in the studio surrounded by others who are on the same journey makes me feel empowered. I want everyone to feel how great it has made me feel. I recently started teaching my own beginner pole classes where I focus on the confidence of being a pole dancer. Please know I don’t stand alone. My studio, instructors and pole sisters stand with me. I only share the inspiration they have given me. I am forever grateful for this nomination.

I dance at Pink Poles Studios in Atlanta, GA and was nominated by one of my instructors Milan. Her email is
