Know Your Instructors

Mary is originally from Harvey, North Dakota and graduated college with a Bachelor Degree in Elementary and Special Education.  She has been teaching for 39 years and is currently a 4th grade teacher at Trinity Elementary.  Mary & her husband, Carson, have 2 children and 4 grandchildren.  She enjoys spending time with her grandkids, singing, traveling, and many outdoor activities.

Mary Steiner has been teaching Aqua Aerobics for Dickinson Parks & Recreation for over 36 years.  She started by inquiring about adult swimming lessons, and not too long after, was asked to team teach Exercise Swimming in the Dickinson State University pool.  The class was then moved to several hotel pools until the West River Community Center was completed in 2004.

She currently teaches Aqua Aerobics Mondays, Wednesdays, & Saturdays.  When asked what she enjoys most about her job, she said she loves when people come to class and want to come back again!  She is an energetic and fun teacher.  Her dedication shows through in all of the classes she teaches.

She encourages people to enjoy the outdoors, drink 8 or more glasses of water daily, laugh, and above all, draw strength from God & count your blessings.

Make sure to visit Mary in her classes, Monday & Wednesday mornings at 5:30am, & Saturdays at 8:00am.
