Maša Leskovšek

Maša holds a Master’s degree from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in Special and Rehabilitation Pedagogy. She teaches performing arts and visual arts. She is both a dancer and a dance teacher with a strong music and art background. Through art, music, dance, and theater, Maša uses a multi-sensory and multicultural approach to integrate executive function skills and social-emotional learning into her class while working on cross-curriculum connections with other teachers across the school.

Before coming to the USA, she worked with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and developmental delays at a learning center in Ljubljana and as a tutor for children with learning differences in Madrid, Spain. Maša has 19 years of experience in teaching dance and movement. She earned a certification in transposing dance technique for dancers with disabilities in New York by Kitty Lunn and was teaching creative dance classes for dancers with intellectual disabilities.
