Hello HSC students and parents!! I’m Dana Paige- known to my students as “Ms. Paige”. I am both excited and honored to be teaching ‘Martial Art’s, ‘Abacus Math Adventures’ and ‘Stomp It!’ this year. I have been teaching at HSC since the Fall of 2008. As a martial artist, I’ve studied Tae Kwon Do and Wushu. I have a dance and music background so I like creating classes that allow me to teach movement and martial arts. I teach Abacus math which became a wonderful foundation and experience for my daughter when she was young and I was homeschooling her.
I am currently a 5th degree black belt. I own and operate Full Circle Martial Arts-Colorado’s Premier Kids School, which went virtual with classes held on Zoom since March 2020. This summer we were able to add an ‘in person’ class and students continue to train with the mix of Zoom and ‘in-person’.
My daughter formerly attended HSC, is a 1st degree Black Belt, and is a college student at CSU in Fort Collins. I homeschooled my daughter through middle school and it was the best experience for us! When I’m not teaching martial arts I play guitar, piano, drums, write songs, dance and take cool photos of people.
I LOVE teaching Martial Arts, Abacus Math Adventure, and Stomp It! because I love spending time with young students and want each one of them to feel confident and happy about all of their learning adventures.
I look forward to each new year at HSC where I will get to meet new students and I also get to see my awesome students from last year!

Hello everyone! My name is Nick Wolf and I am a martial arts and coding teacher at the Home School Connection. I have been training in Taekwondo since the age of 8 years old, and currently hold a 4th degree black belt in Shimsan Taekwondo, as well as in Haidong Gumdo, the Korean sword arts. I started coding in college at Regis University while pursuing a Computer Science degree. From there, I found out about Scratch, and was able to share my love of coding with my students as well!
I own and operate Superior Martial Arts in Conifer, Colorado with my brother. We work with students of all ages and ranks to share the joy of learning Taekwondo together! Taekwondo, and working with my students, are always the highlights of my day. I love seeing a student finally get something they have been struggling on for a while!
My coding company is called MindDance, and we teach coding in Scratch to elementary aged students across the Denver metro area. Scratch is a coding language developed at MIT for young coders. We host Scratch Lab, a fun and creative environment for kids to learn how to code and share their creations with each other!
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy working on my coding projects, reading a good book, and going hiking in our beautiful Colorado weather. I am looking forward to meeting a new group of students this year!
