I am an educator with a passion for enriching the lives of my students through theatre. I believe the arts have an excellent way of bringing people together and sharing the human experience. My education coursework has prepared me to share my love of learning and theatre with my students.
I grew up in the theater. My mom was a drama teacher and my dad was a pianist in the pit. Everyday after school I would be in the auditorium watching the really cool high school kids during rehearsals. Occasionally I got to be up on stage with them when young kids were in the shows. I wore all black on performance nights to be like the stage crew. I was in awe of the magic of theatre, and I have loved it ever since.
Subsequently I’ve worked in all aspects of theatre - acting, designing, directing, publicity, and construction which has given me the knowledge to help my students learn about whichever area of theatre they are interested in.
In addition to my theatre education, I have taken several fine art and graphic design courses that have given me a better eye for design, the knowledge to design and create marketing materials, and experience that has made me a better (theatre) artist.
