Ms. Gray - Dance Teacher
Ms. Gray has been working at Loveworks for the past four years as a paraprofessional, kindergarten teacher, and now the dance teacher. She began dancing at the age of 5. She spent 13 years mastering ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap, and hip hop while also competing and traveling throughout her childhood. After high school, Ms. Gray attended the University of Winona where she graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Social Work. Since teaching at Loveworks,  her love for teaching children has grown immensely. Her goals for our students are to help them explore their love for dance, promote self-confidence, and most importantly push them to be their best selves.
Ms. Erickson - Visual Arts Teacher


My name is Ms Erickson! I completed my Bachelor degree in Studio Art from Hamline University in 2019 and spent the past three years teaching at a Montessori School in Saint Paul. My studio practice involves printmaking, mixed media collage and textiles but I have experience teaching a variety of visual content. My goal for this year is to have students explore principles of art and design by creating work that is important to them. In my free time you can find me enjoying live music, playing with my dog and drinking too much iced coffee.
