TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught high school drama since 1996. I teach year long classes in Beginning, Advanced, and Advanced Drama Honors. Advanced Drama Honors, otherwise known as Cupertino Actors Theatre, is an audition only ensemble based theatre company for youth, where students receive honors credit for their work in theatre.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe creativity can be taught. I believe a good theatre class is a blend of rigorous coursework and creative play, which an emphasis on the ensemble ethic. Because I am luckily enough to teach a program where students can take theatre all four years of high school, many of my former students now work in film, television and theatre in a variety of creative capacities. I believe that theatre education is essential for the education of the whole student. I believe in creating a structured and creative environment for students based on the practice of physical theatre, rituals to open and close class, and daily rehearsal and performance.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My students continue to win top honors at state and local theatre festivals in California. In 2014, students from my department swept their track for monologues at the Lenaea Theatre Festival at Folsom Lake College in Folsom, California, and took home several first and second place awards for scenes, monologues, and one acts at the Ohlone College Theatre Festival.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BA in English from Vassar College and an MA in Theatre from San Jose University. I wrote my Master's Exam on Textual Variants in Filmed Versions of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Program Director, Cupertino Actors Theatre at Cupertino High School. Member, California Educational Theatre Association and American Alliance for Theatre in Education.
