My Students

MLMS has some of the finest students in our nation. They are caring, considerate, conscientious about learning, and are truly amazing human beings. They are our future scientists, doctors, lawyers, community and human rights activists, service workers, and farmers.

I'm fairly certain there are superheroes among my students.

They come to me with plights and struggles, yet there are always individuals who help brighten other peoples day, commit acts of kindness and help protect the those who need it most. It is always an honor to come to school and educate those who bless my day.

My Project

This assorted list of books are all on the topic of teaching drama. I currently have no resources, which is problematic. All of the books listed have very high customer reviews and are on point with what I am trying to achieve in the classroom.

The key compendiums of this library will help me facilitate students to work collaboratively, with a common goal of producing plays.

This is something that I struggle with, and am in dire need of information and ideas pertaining to teaching and performing. Some of these books will help create a rich and rewarding atmosphere to our educational setting, and help the students feel more fulfilled at the end of the day. The science aspect would be the technologies used in modern costumes.
