“When I say that Belinda is one of the best listeners I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, I’m not hyperbolizing….”
I started playing sports at a very young age until they eventually took me on to a collegiate career. I had coaches for everything. I was very fortunate in that regard. I’ve always sought out mentors to help me advance in sports, academics, and now, acting. When I say that Belinda is one of the best listeners I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, I’m not hyperbolizing. She is so knowledgeable, yet she doesn’t let that knowledge elevate her above her students. You really feel and understand that Belinda is there to be working with you.
Throughout my years of having coaches and mentors, I’ve always felt that they can easily fall into the trap of letting their expertise or knowledge be used as a platform of power. Not Belinda. Her curiosity and desire to walk into a classroom with her students and listen to them is unparalleled. Also, there were several students in the class who mentioned their earlier experience with the Alexander Technique and how they weren’t huge fans of it. That wasn’t their experience this time around.
A teacher is a conductor of the energy in a classroom. In my experience, how Belinda conducts her classroom environment is beyond intelligent, beyond creative, beyond fun— it’s caring, full of listening, and curious.
