LEARNwest Instructor Spotlight – Bob Neff

written by Sue Otte, Continuing Education Specialist

Learnwest Instructor Bob NeffOne of the best things about being the Continuing Education Specialist for Community Education is that I am able to meet and work with so many amazing and talented instructors. With the start of our new blog I want to share with you from time to time information about LEARNwest’s instructors.

For this first spotlight I would like you to meet Bob Neff. Bob is teaching our Juggling 101 class being offered now at Valley Southwoods Freshman High School.

A Des Moines native, Bob Neff learned to juggle in high school, waiting for an open tennis court. Why get bored standing around when there are three balls, also with nothing to do?

Bob joined a juggling club 18 years later. That’s when the fun really began – passing balls and clubs, learning passing patterns, enjoying the camaraderie of his juggling pals. The cardio and mental benefits from juggling are another plus.

As much as he enjoys juggling, teaching others to enjoy this pastime comes naturally to Bob. From the first toss, through buddy juggling and the thrill of that first three-ball run, Bob shares the joy of juggling.
