I am a school theatre teacher/director and a published playwright As a teacher with over 10 years experience, my passion lies in helping other teachers find more creative ways to introduce content. Much of my experience has been in English/Language Arts and Drama, Theatre, and Speech, but I believe plays, scripts, and general theater activities can be integrated into the core content areas seamlessly.
Most of my teaching is project and problem-based. I believe in putting students in difficult, problem-solving situations that require them to collaborate and investigate and play around with many different ideas and solutions. I also believe that the less the teacher is in front of the class, the better, so I strive to create products that can put students in charge of teaching the content through creative means.
