Observation of leadership skills

For my leadership evaluation, I observed MS. Wendy Fook’s Zumba class at the Arlington Heights community center on the North Side of Youngstown. MS.

She had a television that was playing at the same time as she was teaching, and he used it as a prop to help her students understand the techniques she was trying to convey to them. The television had all the Zumba techniques on a loop, so most of the participants ended up paying more attention to the television instead of listening to her. Ms. Fooks had the television playing really loudly, it was very distracting and a poor decision by her as the external noises hurt the ability of the class to speak amongst themselves and ask MS. Fooks questions. But in the grand scheme of things, I think the Television helped her out as she was using an indirect teaching method. She would perform the movement and the Television would give the instructions. So I will give her a four out of five for leadership. She was prepared and provided a simple and effective method to perform the steps and have each member of the class reach their goals.

KNOWLEDGE AND CREDIBILITY: From my observations, Miss Fooks was very knowledgeable in preforming every Zumba...
