Houston: Also awarding a Bronze level franchise to Becky Hubbell. Becky will be teaching to children in the Austin area in the state of Texas. Becky was born and raised in Houston, Texas, taking dance classes since she was 3 years old! Being a shy girl, Becky found an outlet in dance where she felt free to express herself and shine. After graduating high school, Becky pursued her other passion of working with children at Texas State University where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education. Becky relocated to Austin, Texas where she taught third, fourth, and fifth grade for twelve years. It was here where she met her husband, Jake. Although her love for children and teaching was being fulfilled, Becky felt like something was missing. After reconnecting with an old friend from high school, Wendy, Becky discovered the Kinderdance program. She became a teacher for her friend and decided to make the next step in becoming a Kinderdance franchise owner.
