KINGSPORT — Someone might guess that the Jackson Elementary School Dance Club was all about dancing. However, the teacher who leads the dance group said it is also about empowering students through The Leader in Me Program at the Kingsport City Schools elementary facility.
“We are basically just a family. We work together,” said club sponsor and reading interventionist Teresa Haywood. She said the group of girls in grades 3-5 enjoy dancing, but that the club also helps them get over being anxious about getting in front of groups.
