When does it start to stir in a child? The teaching profession has long been associated with the word “inspiration.” As a high school student, Sue Mack found inspiration through the Christa McAuliffe tragedy. As Mack says, recalling the event, “She wouldn’t have wanted people to give up on their dreams.” Mack has followed her dream and teaches science at Nashua Catholic Regional Junior High School (NCRJHS). Continuing to grow professionally, she made the time to go through a lengthy application process that earned her one of only 40 NASA fellowships nationwide this year. NASA’s Endeavor Science Teaching Certificate Project combines with Columbia University in New York to assist teachers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and further their education, inspiring their students in those fields. Living her dream and committed to the future, Mack pulls her teaching experience together, stating, “The goal is to inspire students.” Nashua Catholic proudly supports the dedication of Mack and many teachers like her. To see the challenging program at NCRJHS, we invite you to stop by our Open House on April 11 from 12:30-2 p.m. at 6 Bartlett Avenue in Nashua.
Happy Feet Dance School
Happy Feet Dance School, LLC is a friendly dance school built on the belief that anyone can dance. The school focuses on each student’s unique potential to dance to the best of their own ability. Students are able to grow in a positive atmosphere with an emphasis on fun! The school was opened in the fall of 2005 under its current owner, Erica O’Donaghue. Since its early days, the school has offered classes in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Hip Hop, Cheer Dance, and Lyrical to students of all ages. The school has proven to be very popular with its age-appropriate pre-school classes. New to Happy Feet this year is the Fancy Feet
Performance Company. This company allows the school’s older, more serious students the
opportunity to perform at Happy Feet events. The company performed in a holiday show this past December, and will be performing in a “Princess Show” this weekend. This program has been a positive experience for all students involved. It has allowed to older students an opportunity to choreograph pieces of their own performance. The program allowed the younger students to learn the importance of teamwork. Most importantly, all students had a wonderful time performing for their friends, family, and peers! Happy Feet Dance School, LLC is currently planning their fun-filled summer programs. Feel free to call Erica at 434-4437 for more information.

of Pelham and is currently attending Nashua Community College to further his education in the repair industry. Both Paul and Shane understand how you want to be treated and make sure that their service meets your needs, both in customer service and the quality of the work they do. Performance Auto Body and Auto Sales specialize in all aspects of auto body repair; from custom grill inserts to complete custom paint jobs. Many fender benders arrive on the dock at Performance Auto Body, as well as autos with major accident damage. Whether it’s a small ding or body part that you need repaired or replaced, or a complete restoration, Performance has the manpower and expertise to bring your car or truck back to “better than new” condition. Performance Auto Body provides insurance assistance and offers senior discounts and auto rentals. Some insurance companies want you to visit their drive-in claims center before having your car repaired. You can do this, or you may leave your car at our shop and ask that the insurance company inspect the car here. There is no law requiring you to obtain more than one estimate or appraisal, and you have the right to go to the repair shop of your choice. Your insurance company cannot require you to go to a particular shop. Performance can handle all the dealings with the insurance companies, from towing to rentals and payment. “We can work with vehicle owners who have been paid by their insurance companies for the damages on their vehicle. Performance Auto Body can then go beyond the basic repair to
enhance or customize the vehicles,” said Paul. “Instead of the normal repair, we are able to find additional savings and use the money found to customize the vehicle with a sleek hood, bumper, or grille,” continued Paul, pointing to a photo of a truck on the wall. “We are here to stay in Hudson and work with other companies that have fleets, trucks, and equipment,” said Paul. “Our customers have a major investment in their vehicles; we know and understand how much the look of their vehicles represents them personally and professionally.” In addition to Paul and Shane, Ron Fisher is a certified body tech, Derek is our frame tech/ custom artist, and along with them is Dave Hall and Rick Herbert, who are both painters. Jen DerAnanian works in auto sales and Paul Sr. is the accountant and business manager who has more than 30 years business experience. “We want to continue to build relationships that will allow us to grow together,” said Paul. “We all grow and prosper together. We like to create little networks of companies who support each other, and are always willing to meet new companies who believe the same.” One of the latest developments is Performance’s PPG Certified Collision Repair Center status. This means to auto owners that all products used in repairing the vehicle are of the latest state-of- the-art technology, as well as endorsed by a PPG lifetime paint performance guarantee. So whether you need a small part replaced, repaired, or have been in an accident and have dings and dents to take care of, come in and speak to the staff at Performance Auto Body. “We’ll definitely work hard to impress you with our knowledge and quality of work, so you’ll hopefully send your friends and family to us. And although we would like to earn your repeat business, it is one of those businesses where we hope we don’t see you too soon,” Paul laughed. To reach Performance Auto Body, call 882-4760.
