"A teaching artist is
a practicing professional artist with the complementary skills, curiosities and habits of mind of an educator, who can effectively engage a wide range of people in learning experiences in, through, and about the arts.” -Eric Booth
My experience in teaching artistry
is mainly in drama, oratory, and creative writing. I’ve taught students from Kindergarten through 12th Grade, incarcerated students, students with special needs, English language learners, adults — pretty much everyone. I also have several years of experience conducting professional development workshops and residencies for classroom teachers and teaching artists. Workshop offerings include Drama for Social Justice, Women in the Civil War, Langston Hughes & The Harlem Renaissance, and skill-based workshops such as Beginning and Advanced Acting, and Scene Study.
Much of my most rewarding and exciting work
as a teaching artist has been during my service as Lead Teaching Artist at historic Ford’s Theatre. There, I was able to explore and share my interest in American history, while building long-term relationships with excellent teachers from across the United States.
Here are some of my favorite experiences as Lead Teaching Artist at Ford's Theatre.
This is a trailer for an Ovation mini-doc on Ford's Theatre, where I'm serving up some historian realness in Ford's Theatre: America's Playhouse.
