TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi there! I am a very experienced drama educator having done so for thirty-eight years for both the public and private sector. Whew! During this time, I created curriculum for studies in creative dramatics, creative movement, introduction to musical theatre, musical theatre, film making, technical theatre, introduction to Shakespeare, introduction to theatre as well speech and debate. In addition, I have directed over 250 plays and musicals with children and adults alike. My sister was an elementary teacher for many years as were my aunts. In the late 1800's, my fraternal grandmother was known for her strength in teaching math in the wilds of Kansas. My maternal grandmother established the first kindergarten in Osaka, Japan in the 1890's. In short, teaching is in my blood and comes to me joyfully and naturally.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Drama is a hands on class. To this end, I'm always on my feet, modeling for my students while teaching them a host of concepts. It is not unusual to hear my classroom in chortles of laughter because humor is an outstanding way to gain a student's attention. I empower students at an early age. Although I am always mindful of my learning objectives, I think it's vital for students to experiment within the confines of my instruction. I encourage students to be independent and creative thinkers. Many less confident or reluctant students benefit from my teaching methods as together we hit the challenges they encounter. I am creative, intense, driven and brave--these are three qualities I nurture in all my students and generally receive outstanding results.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've received awards as an outstanding drama teacher (Longmont, CO Superintendent's Excellence in Educator Award), twice nominated for Outstanding Specialist through the Columbia, MO school district and thrice nominated for Disney Teacher of the Year. I was Teacher of the Month with the Columbia, Missouri Downtown Rotary. Also, I directed the Martin Luther King Diversity Celebration which was honored for excellence by the National League of Cities and National Black Caucus of Elected Officials.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received a BFA from Stephens College in Columbia, MO and a MED from the Lesley College in Cambridge, MA. I have additional hours in education and language arts From the University of Missouri-Columbia and Lindenwood College. Through the Institute for Children's Literature I studied beginning and advanced writing for children and teens which is my newest passion.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a happily married wife of thirty-five years (who'd ever put up with me that long, I'll never know...) and mother to two grown daughters and a wonderful step son. Recently, we became a grandparents (!!!!) to the most precious granddaughter in the world. When I'm not teaching, directing, writing or reading I enjoy seeing movies and traveling. My cats want me to mention I am their hand maiden which is undeniably true. Lastly, I'm an award winning middle grade author for my humorous middle grade book Bumbling Bea.
