TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught creative expression to all different ages. I have co-created and taught acting camps/courses for many years (ages 8-18) through my business: www.creativeexpressionforchildren.com and I was the assistant performing arts director for Central York High School in York, PA for over 10 years. Over the years-I have developed my own style and creative expression course that I have used in the High School, Middle School, as well as Elementary School levels.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach creative expression so many of the activities we do are experiential and based on exploring the body, face, and voice. I find that creativity is sometimes locked up in fear of "looking silly" or the assumption that "I cannot be creative" and that with a little support and some highly creative activities based on the universal language of play- that creative spark can be unlocked and suddenly there is more permission to let that voice out and read or speak with expression! I have found even the quietest of kiddos have fun with these activities and when feeling really supported-I have seen kids develop numerous skills (reading with expression, writing with depth, imagination, self-trust, confidence in speaking aloud, and making creative choices, etc.) I teach that your creative expression is always inside you and that we ALL have the birthright, ability, and talent to express ourselves in an authentic, clear, supported, and heart-connected way! I use puppets, basic scripts, readers theatre practices, improvisation, hero's journey exploration of face, body, and voice to unleash those vibrant expressive creative spirits!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated with a B.F.A in Drama from Syracuse University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My family and I moved from PA to Kansas City, MO a few years ago and I am building my business here where my husband and I are currently raising our three kiddos. We have identical twin daughters and a son. I love to write and teach creative expression! I have enjoyed writing scripts for classrooms throughout many years of exploring Readers Theatre as I have seen kids come to life with their expression through the art of theatre and it is my absolute joy to support this heart movement! I encourage all humans that are in front of children to embrace the immense honor it is to work with the next evolution of creative innovators. :-) Check out my website for more info on my mission: www.creativeexpressionforchildren.com
