Adventures of a Drama Teacher

{August 9, 2008}   And We’re Off!

5,4,3,2,1 and we’re off!!! School starts Monday and I am still frantically running around getting things done for my classroom and Mo’s. Mo will be taking guitar, keyboard, Spanish and computer tech at his new school (Learning Fountains School for the Performing Arts). I am excited about all the music and Spanish. I have been working on the mandatory teacher website for Mesa Public Schools and this site is linked so I will also link back to the site. Eventually the Theatre Club page will be built and today I will add course guidelines to 5th and 6th hour. (My stuff for that is at school). In the meantime I am off to the races to see if I can make it down the list of TO-Dos for today. See you all on Monday! Oh and the staff at RMHS is fantastic! I am going to love working with Mr. J and I really like the principal too. 🙂


{August 1, 2008}   On with the SHOW!

What a fabulous feeling, like dancing on the ceiling to have so many excited, passionate, talented, hard-working students waiting for me at school this week and hanging out cleaning and organizing and contemplating how to run the drama club this year! Oh how they’d grown, all taller, and wiser and driving! I am so lucky to have so many wonderful students all over the world and I am so happy to commence the year and get started on the fall play. On with the show!
