My Students

My students are creative, ambitious, and imaginative! In my classroom, they are given the opportunity to collaborate, problem solve, and think outside the box! Theatre gives them a chance to explore the world around them and share their findings with others! Students take theatre, dance and visual art weekly. There are over 850 students in attendance, 96% of whom receive free lunch. Statistically our school is 66% Hispanic, 30% Asian, 5% White or Black. 27% of students are English Language Learners and 15% are Special Needs students. My students take pride in being a part of our school community. They are a part of the Leader in Me program in which they follow the seven habits of happy kids (be proactive, put first things first, synergize, sharpen the saw, think win-win, seek first to understand, begin with the end in mind) and strive to be leaders in our school community. Leadership roles in theatre and dance include being a stage manager, dance assistant, assistant director, lighting director, sound director, and a member of stage crew. These positions allow the students to be leaders in our school's performing arts programs.

My Project

As a theatre teacher for a Title 1 school my goal is to introduce my students to the performing arts by giving them the opportunity to both participate in and view live theatre. This allows us to cultivate an appreciation for the arts as a school. Each year approximately 75-100 students take part in a school musical. They rehearse for eight months and are involved in every step of the process- costumes, props, sets, marketing, etc. In June they perform for the entire school and our community. The school musical has become an event that students, parents, teachers and community members look forward to each year. As the appreciation grows, we strive to make it bigger and better! This year the students are performing Beauty and the Beast Jr. They participate in creating their costumes and set pieces. The rose petals and ivy will be used for such purposes. The Belle costume, wig, aprons and hats will be the finishing touches to their costumes they have been working on!
