Instructor Biography: Mrs. Toy Pabst

Thora Pabst, V Dan

My TKD training began in 1974 with Grand Master Winegar, who at that time was Mr. Mike Winegar, a 1st Degree Black Belt.

I have been his student since then, but family obligations necessitated two extended breaks in my training. For the past ten years, I have been able to devote myself without interruption to the art.

In April of 2014, I was promoted to the rank of 5th degree black belt.

I am a Class B International Instructor and a Class B Referee.

I am retired from the education profession, having spent most of my 30 years of teaching in the instruction of reading and language arts of middle school students in Weld County School District #6.

I have a BS and an MA in Education from Drake University, with certification in Gifted & Talented and Special Ed. I have a further 80 hours of education beyond the MA level from UNC.
