Joyce Kesseler

Joyce-KesslerJoyce holds an architectural studies degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign but the undertaking of being a parent beckoned her away from architecture. As a stay at home mom for fourteen years to three boys, Joyce held small jobs here and there in architecture and education. A long time student of dance, Joyce began working at the Dundee Township Park District as a preschool substitute teacher, teacher’s aide and dance instructor. Volunteering at Sleepy Hollow Elementary School for eight years also helped her discover her desire to encourage and uplift children.

Joyce embraces with a happy heart any opportunity that allows her to be part of dance – as a spectator or a teacher – and feels very fortunate to share her passion with Turning Pointe students.
