As a school, we are making strides to serve the whole child, offering the traditional core-4, CTE, and arts classes representing each artistic discipline: music, theatre, and visual. My classroom serves mixed grades, 10th - 12th-grade students, for each class, whether Public Speaking, Acting 1 or Acting 2. Even though many students have not elected to be in my classroom, I have high expectations for them from day one, and they strive to meet and exceed those expectations. We have fun focusing on reading, writing, critical thinking, and creative expression. Public Speaking and Acting classes allow students to become more self-aware, build confidence, and provide additional transferable life skills, including research and collaboration.
