Ramona-Packham-Rocketstars-Teacher

Meet Ramona Packham, ballet and latin expert.

Helping kids be the best they can be is what drives us, and it’s no secret. Why?

Last week we introduced Emma, and now we meet Ramona… in our new series profiling the Rocketstars™ Academy teachers.

Because our amazing team of teachers and experts are incredibly passionate about seeing their students develop and grow into successful, happy young people.

Classes: BALLET, LATIN & PHYSICAL CONDITIONING

Tell us what it is you teach, and why you do what you do.

Ramona: Teaching kids to dance is founded on the gratitude I have for being given this same opportunity as a little one. Growing up in the studio is one of the most precious gifts I ever received. I love to watch kids share the same passion I have, and to see them learning, developing, and enjoying the process is invaluable. 

Teaching adults is a personal favourite…

I love meeting motivated individuals who are fighting to overcome the barriers of pursuing fitness and joy. Creating an environment to facilitate healthy social community is exciting, and I certainly benefit in this social aspect myself! 

Rocketstars Academy is a team of incredibly passionate people. What drives you to help kids be the best they can be?

Ramona: An essential part of my role is to make kids aware of the potential they have and then support them in getting there!

Kids inspire me because they dream big dreams. The people they look up to and learn from are going to have an impact on the decisions they make for the rest their lives. To be a part of unlocking their fearlessness is an opportunity I would never give up.

What’s your favourite saying or quote to do with teaching kids?

Ramona: The phrase ‘I can’t’ is simply not to be in your vocabulary.

What do you think is the best part and the best thing about remote learning – but also the most challenging thing?

Remote learning has allowed us to continue pursuing the hobbies and interests we all have! It provides us with a platform to continue working toward our goals, interacting with friends, and gives us structured activity day to day.

The most challenging part of remote learning is being unable to transmit our energy and excitement in its fullest, but we’ve done our very best… And will be back to face-to-face soon!

Emma-Wilby-Rocketstars-Teacher

Teachers rock! Meet Emma Wilby, Dance & Drama expert.

It’s no secret. Helping kids learn, to be the best they can be… It’s what energises us!

Why? It’s because our amazing experts are incredibly passionate about seeing their students develop and grow into successful, happy young people.

Tell us what it is you teach, and why you do what you do.

Emma: I teach dance and drama at Rocketstars Academy. I do it because I love it, it’s as simple as that!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to pass on my passion for the arts and give students the tools and guidance that they need to indulge in the wonderfully expressive world of dance and drama.

Rocketstars Academy is a team of incredibly passionate people. What drives you to help kids be the best they can be?

Emma: I love teaching because I get to witness, first hand, the student’s incredible growth in each class. Everyone gets to watch an awesome performance on stage at the end of the year, but I am lucky enough to witness and encourage growth in confidence, discipline and their love of  performing every single week in class.

I see all the hard work, tears and frustration, but also the joy, motivation and triumphs and it is amazing to be part of that journey!

What’s your favourite saying or quote to do with teaching kids?

 “The best teachers are those who show you where to look but don’t tell you what to see”

Emma: No two students are the same. I strongly believe in encouraging individuality, creativity and uniqueness!!!

What do you think is the best part and the best thing about remote learning – but also the most challenging thing?

Emma: Remote learning can, of course, be challenging. It’s new and unfamiliar and kids find it funny to be learning from the comfort of their own home, rather than in their usual learning spaces.

But how incredible is technology? We have the opportunity to connect and learn from anywhere in the state, the country or in the world! I even taught a private student from Costa Rica a few weeks ago, how insane is that?

It shows and proves to us just how amazing and capable we are. I have been so impressed by how switched on and determined students have been. It’s a true testament to their passion for learning.
