In my teaching practice, I encourage curiosity and play, foster creativity, and help my students to build meaningful relationships with their surroundings and peers. 

 

Education is the foundation of success

and ARTS EDUCATION exposes students to core values that help to create thoughtful, intelligent and engaged adults.

 

Success and then some!

By sharing my own passion for theatre through teaching, its my goal that students are able to learn empathy, courage, responsibility, and respect while also (of course) honing their creative talents and skills as performers and young artists.
