My Students

Our school is located in a high poverty area near Tampa, Florida. My students come from over 40 different elementary schools and are attending our school for a variety of reasons. The mission of our school is to use the arts as the primary way to teach the core academic curriculum. Students go from the one teacher model to an eight teacher model each semester. They each take some half year classes in the arts in order to introduce them to the various types of specific classes that they can take in the future. My students are required to take a half a year of theater in grade six. When I first tell them that they will be required to get up in front of the class, many of them shake their heads in disbelief and inform me that they are not going to do that.

Once students have experienced their first performance, which includes writing, casting, and performing in their own play, they are eager to do more.

They become excited to work with others to create a product of their own. They fall in love with the theater!

My Project

I am requesting reader's theater scripts, monologue books, acting scenes, and musical theater accompaniments for students to use in performing.

I envision having performance assemblies where over 300 sixth grade students will have the opportunity to perform in front of each other as well as learn how to be a member of an audience .

These books will be part of our theater library which will be used daily by students both in class and in extracurricular activities.

I am so excited by the possibilities that can occur when children get to experience live theater!

Please help us " get on with the show"!
