    I'm looking to connect with anyone out there who teaches theatre as a special in K-5th-like PE, Art, or Music.

    I do for fifth (in a K-8) school, and am working on how I could add some younger ones also...
    Feel free to email me directly.

    This is my 13th year teaching elementary drama for APS Fine Arts. I love my job and have been extremely fortunate to have an abundance of support from my students, parents, teachers and the community. I would be more than happy to share any resources or curriculum ideas that might interest you.

    Nice to know that there are other elementary drama teachers blazing the trail.

    Hi, Shelia.

    I teach drama to students from PS-gr. 5.  As there are not a lot of  us, we do need to connect.

    Would you like to form a listserve, LinkedIn, or FB group to communicate more fluidly?  I think there is a public elementary/middle school teachers group on FB, but it doesn't get much traffic. The groups on LinkedIn are larger but are not well trafficked either.

    What are your thoughts?

    Hello Elementary Theatre Teachers!
    Congrats on finding each other through Community and building a network! We at EdTA would like to include a workshop specifically for elementary theatre teachers at the EdTA National Conference this Fall and are looking for teachers that would like to present. If you are interested in sharing your resources and knowledge of elementary theatre ed with your peers please submit a proposal to teach, or be in touch with me so I can answer any questions about teaching at the conference you might have. I hope you will consider this and share the link.

    Happy 2019!
