The Educational Theatre Association has awarded four members with the EdTA National Conference Grant for Theatre Educators in support of professional development. This grant was developed to: assist EdTA members in reaching a higher level of professional achievement by participating in EdTA’s National Conference; assist EdTA members with the cost of professional development and create access to valuable continuing education and networking opportunities; and enhance the knowledge and skills of experienced theatre educators so that they can better contribute to their school, students, and the profession. The following members were awarded the 2017 grant:
In addition to the grants for theatre educators, The Educational Theatre Association has awarded a pre-professional member, Kaitlyn Etter, with the EdTA National Conference Grant. Etter recently earned a Master of Arts in Teaching and is a Thespian alum from Troupe 2129 at Claremont High School in California. She will begin her first teaching job in the fall and is excited to attend Conference in order to “continue to build my skills and my “tool box” as a future theatre educator.”
Both grants cover EdTA National Conference registration and one professional development intensive seminar fee.
