TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been working with children, in a variety of capacities, for the past ten years. This includes enrichment programs, summer camps, and children's theatre groups, but the majority of my experience is in my own 2/3 blended classroom. I am also an experienced actor and director.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom is a warm and inviting place where students are nurtured as part of a cooperative learning community. I honor the strengths (and weaknesses) of all my students as individuals. We celebrate each other and our differences. Above all else, my students are encouraged to view their learning as a connected and creative process. I teach using the Scottish Storyline Method - an integrated, experiential and thematic approach to teaching and learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In 2009 I was honored with a grant from donorschoose.org to fund a storyline entitled "The Living Art Museum." Also in 2009, I was proud to be selected as a presenter at the International Storyline Conference in Portland, OR.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My college years were spent in Vermont at Middlebury College where I primarily studied Theatre and English. Shakespeare was a common thread that tied my studies together. My first attempt adapting Much Ado About Nothing was while taking “Shakepeare’s Comedies†through Middlebury’s English Department. I initially wrote it to use at a summer camp were I was working as the Theatre Director. Studying Much Ado About Nothing in an academic setting while writing my children’s version offered great insights and helped me to include key elements of the original piece. While at Middlebury I also acted and stage managed for department productions. This included a semester studying with the London Theatre Exchange while acting in Henry V. My senior year I completed my thesis in directing with the production of a full-length play. In my spare time I enjoyed writing and directing for a local children’s theatre program. In 2004, I graduated from Middlebury College with a B.A. in Theatre and English and a minor in Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. It was there that my love of theatre was born. Starting at the age of nine, I acted in various community, college, and repertory theatre productions. In high school, I got my first taste of directing while working on my school’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
