Michael L. Reist,
The Amazing Magi
Hi. My name is Michael L. Reist. I am the owner and teacher at Hershey Magic School. I decided to open this Magic School because all my life I have been working with children and families and I still love teaching. I have taught children of all ages in Preschool, Elementary, Middle and High School. I am retired but still certified to teach in the State of PA.
My first paid “teaching/tutoring” position came when I was in college at Penn State. I was hired to teach English as a Second Language in a Tutoring Lab on Campus. After that I taught at all Grade Levels and even taught at Reading Area Community College.
I love Teaching but I also love Magic. I first became interested in Magic as a Teenager. My favorite magician at the time was Doug Henning. I performed various shows as a teenager. But after graduation from High School I served 4 years in the military and then went to Penn State for my Bachelor’s Degree and Kutztown University for my Master’s Degree.
During this time I did not actively do magic. But about 15 years ago I realized how much I missed Magic, being a Magician and Performing. I began to practice and then began performing. I perform under the name of The Amazing Magi and if you would like more information about those services I provide you can click here.
Magic and Teaching are my passions and I want to use this Marvelous Curriculum from Discover Magic to not only teach your children magic, but to empower them, give them self-confidence, promote their social skills, and teach them fundamental traits that make them both successful magicians and young men and women.
Also rest assured, as a Teacher I have all background checks, liability insurance and more. Your children will be taught by a Professional who has dedicated his life to teaching and working with children and families.
“Every night we’re treated to a magic show. This has boosted their confidence so much!”
“This is the only program my kid comes home excited to tell me about every detail of his day!”
