Kids Gymnastics Classes, Teaching Schedule:

As of May 2016, after 10 years of teaching for the City of Portland Parks and Rec Dept, I no longer offer kids gymnastics classes at
Mt. Scott Community Center in SE Portland.

I had to leave due to ongoing sanitation issues and lack of equipment disinfection which caused me ongoing significant serious health issues, including skin rashes and reactions, allergies, and multiple serious skin and systemic infections including staph, MRSA and impetigo.

The most recent health issues could have resulted in my death 2x in the last year prompting me to give notice and leave.  I encourage you to find somewhere else to take your children for gymnastics lessons.

MSCC management and the City of Portland, Parks and Rec Dept. is apparently incapable of hiring the necessary personnel required to maintain the equipment that is required for the program, and of implementing a cleaning schedule that ensures public and employee health and safety.

I tried for years before getting sick and for months after getting sick to inform them of the contamination and sanitation issues, and appropriate actions and preventative measures were not taken. 

Therefore, after working for MSCC for 10 years, and running their 2nd most popular program, I'm sorry but I can no longer expose myself and my immune system to such a toxic environment, nor am I willing to endanger the health of my students and the community and families I serve.
