Maeve_GiffinPhilosophy

I am very passionate about figure skating and hope to instill the same love of the sport into my students by providing a positive environment for them to learn and grow. I believe in teaching the basic fundamental skating skills and good edge development in order for my skaters to progress to their full potential. I am determined to help my skaters reach their own personal goals in all levels of their skating.
