I have been a certified theatre arts educator for over 28 years. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication and Theatre Arts; a Masters of Education in Middles School Education; and a Masters of Fine Arts in Motion Pictures and Television. When I first began teaching as a Teach For America corps member in 2003, there was no curriculum for drama/theatre in the elementary/middle school environment. I had the freedom and the challenge of creating her own program. Sure, it had probably been done before, but resources offered by working professionals and others offered activity ideas without a logical way to fit such activities into the classroom environment. There was a yearning for structure and substance that could help the students, staff, and administrators respect the art more. Over the years, I have been able to create a framework that has been very successful! I currently provide private lessons for children and adults. I have my own theatre company, GroundedTheatre Werx, LLC. I have former students that are now Broadway stars, commercial entertainers, artists, and entrepreneurs who credit my class for making a difference in their lives.
