Description

Class Experience

I am a classical actor and teaching artist. In addition to performing many of Shakespeare's plays, I have taught Shakespeare to high school and middle school students for the past 20 years in many different settings, from single-day workshops to two-week camps to semester-long classes. I have been a teaching artist in theatres around the US, including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, The Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington DC, Imagination Stage in Maryland, and others. I was adjunct faculty for two years at Seattle Pacific University, where I directed the University Players, a touring troupe that wrote two scripts per year and toured them to high schools, churches, and community spaces throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Degrees earned: 
BA, Theatre and English, Seattle Pacific University
MFA, Classical Acting, The Shakespeare Theatre Company/George Washington University

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Shakespeare's plays tend to address big themes and big emotions. They frequently depict violence, trauma, and, in a few cases, racist acts and ideas. They also depict the best of the human spirit: love, honor, kindness, faith, hope. Difficult subject matter will be handled with care.
