What I love about teaching is… sharing enthusiasm for my subject matter.
I have been teaching at North Shore Middle School since the fall of 2008. I helped to create and implement the theater and movie making classes at North Shore and continue to help it change and grow every year. In theater classes, students learn how to create characters, act as an ensemble onstage, write scripts, and will discover how theater has changed since ancient times. Students use costumes, props, and the stage to bring their scripts to life. In movie making classes, students learn how to film and edit their own footage to look like professional movies. Students use video cameras and computers to create commercials, newscasts, stop motion films, movie trailers, short films, and more. I also co-direct the fall play and spring musical for our drama club and manage the stage crew.
