Michelle S. came to Gold Star in the spring of 2013, after working at a neighboring club since 2007. Michelle is a much beloved and has a huge following of families who follow her when and wherever she teaches. Michelle is CPR and First Aid certified, has her USA Gymnastics Safety Certification and her Hands-On Training for Preschool and Recreational Gymnastics. She is an ambassador for Donate Life California, volunteers with the Girls Scouts, and various other activities as dictated by her own children. She has pursued a degree in Theatre at San Jose State and Cal State Hayward. This dramatic training is obvious in Michelle’s coaching as she captures the children’s attention and propels them through a magical class. Her care and concern for the safety and well-being of every student is apparent in their first interaction with her. As a mother of three she has an innate understanding of the dynamics of young children (and their parents) which makes her an especially compassionate and empathetic preschool teacher. We are extremely fortunate to have Michelle on our staff.
