HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 Texas Education Theatre Association Theatrefest Presenter 2012 Walter Kase Award Finalist

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I grew up in theatre and learned much of what I use in the classroom today from WONDERFUL 6-12 theatre educators. My undergrad degree from TWU is in elementary education. I graduated summa cum laude from the Honors Scholar Program in 2005 with an honors thesis entitled "The Play is the Thing: Integrating Theatre into the K-8 General Education Classroom." I love to work with early childhood and elementary educators to help bring the benefits of creative dramatics to life in their classrooms. In 2011, I graduated with my MA from the University of Houston's program for Theatre Educators. As part of this amazing program, I studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, Lincoln Center, and the Actor's Studio of Chicago.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In addition to my career as an arts educator, I am lucky to be a homeschooling Mommy to Aedan & Logan and a wife to Matt. My wonderful boys, in addition to my fabulous parents and a supportive extended family, allow me to do what I love every day. Come learn and play with us at http://RisingStarEnrichment.com
