Level 2 Dramas
JOINED OXFORD COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
Welcome to my classroom! I teach Theatre, Speech, and Stagecraft, and am the new Director of the Theatre Program here at OHS. My style, as both a teacher and a director, is to bring passion and professionalism to all I do, and to help students to realize their potential, both on and off stage.
I have several years of experience in teaching and directing theatre, having directed approximately 50 plays, musicals, and dinner theatre productions since I began my professional career. Most recently I directed and grew the theatre program at Rockford High School in Rockford, MI (5 years), where I doubled student participation in curricular theatre while directing 18 main-stage, as well as curricular black box shows. Previous to that, I built and directed the theatre program at Byron Center High School in Bryon Center, MI (8 years), where student involvement in theatre became one of the most popular extra-curricular activities in the school.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy travel and friends. My most recent international trips have been to China, where I worked with Chinese teachers of English for four summers in a row. Additionally, I have taught 5th grade in Costa Rica, and have counseled at kids camps in Egypt. I am also a speaker at conferences where progressive teaching styles and technology in education are an emphasis. My presentation is entitled “Teaching in the Youtube Culture”, and I have enjoyed presenting to educational groups in Detroit, Lansing, Grand Rapids, and Holland, MI.
While theatre is my passion, I recognize that ultimately it is a tool for helping students to discover the best aspects of themselves, and for helping them to share their talents with others. It is my hope that those who participate in my classes and shows will grow as a result of the process, and be proud of the level of excellence they are able to achieve. I look forward to working with many Oxford students as we create great theatre together!
