TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am presently the drama teacher at TISA (Taos Integrated School of the Arts), a charter school in Taos, NM, where I teach grades K-7. I have worked as a drama and writing teacher as part of the after-school Discovery program, and as the Assistant for Children and Family Services at Community Against Violence. My original plays for young people, which are available for purchase as downloads, were written expressly for my students at TISA, and have been performed as part of our drama curriculum.
