Hello there. I have a Master's Degree in Education, having graduated that program with a 4.0 GPA. I'm also an experienced teacher in many of the liberal arts, such as history (U.S., European, and World), Shakespeare, English Lit, and Theatre/Drama (as well as having worked in both community and professional theatre for over 10 years). And finally, for the last 3 years I have been a homeschool teacher for 6 students (representing 3 families), from grades 6 through 12.
I have a passion for history, literature, and theatre, and I believe in teaching through differential, one-on-one instruction, based on how each student learns, rather than teaching dates or memorizing passages from a book by rote.
I have both practical and educational experience in teaching and coaching basketball.
Educationally, I have two classes (on the undergrad level) taken, one in coaching, and one in refereeing.
In practice, I have coached in three different leagues (4th-5th graders, junior-high, and girls' JV high school), two of them for a park district, and one for a city school district.
I have been an actor and director at both the community and professional levels since the mid-1980s, most recently as an actor and director (separate shows) for the Jewish Theatre Workshop in Baltimore. I have worked in Chicago, Baltimore, and near Seattle, WA, in both capacities (actor and director), as well as several stints as a lighting designer. As far as academia goes, I also have three college level classes completed, 2 in acting, and one in directing.
