The pro performer shared a picture of herself in the studio holding a notebook, speaking to (we assume) the girls and their titular mothers — without any of her predecessor's eye rage!
If the 32-year-old's calm and respectful demeanor wasn't enough of an indicator what an awesome coach she'll be, her motivational caption pretty much confirmed it. She wrote:

Maybe it's not too late to say sorry.
Abby Lee Miller has been shouting from the rooftops this week how unfairly she was treated while hosting Dance Moms — but it seems not all hope is lost for her to return to the dance competition series.
The 50-year-old — who says her abrupt departure this week was a "long time coming" — told People it was a friend/makeup artist/hair stylist who "called the boss and said I'm done" on Sunday that prompted Abby Lee to pull the plug:
"That was it. There was a lot that went on. I don't think that [the production company] has ever been able to differentiate between my livelihood, which they think is a TV show, and my livelihood as a dance teacher with a dance studio. To me, I never know when the show is going to end. I know my dance studio is not going to end until I say it ends."

More dancing drama!
ICYMI, DWTS pro Cheryl Burke was announced to take over for Abby Lee Miller for the remainder of this season of Dance Moms – something the outspoken TV personality definitely has an opinion about!
Speaking to Inside Edition for the first time since news broke of her replacement, the 50-year-old ranted:
"I am so excited that somebody else is going to get the experience to work with these ass-holes. [Burke] is skinny, hot. I'm sure they're going to fawn all over her."

The dance instructor went on to tell ET:
"I think that's great…I only met her once at a housewarming party a couple weeks ago. I'm glad that someone who has worked on a network show for as long as she has on Dancing With the Stars is going to see what I've been working with for seven years. I don't think she's replacing me, I think it's going to be a different vibe."

Reminiscing about the entire experience with coach Abby Lee Miller, she said:
"I learned a lot of lessons. I had the craziest time when I was with her and on that team. I'm really glad that I did move on from that, and I did learn a lot from her and we did have some fun times. But I feel like now, I've never been happier in my life, and I'm not stressed at all."
The 14-year-old also revealed that she's never actually watched a full episode of the show either:
