About Amanda


Bio

I am an educator by day and a theatre artist by night. I went to Iowa State University, where I earned my B.A. in Performing Arts - Acting & Directing. I spent the next 7 years traveling all around the United States working for a variety of theatre companies. In 2012, I made the decision to go to Graduate School as a next step toward my goal of teaching. I graduated with my M.F.A. in Theatre Arts. My long term goal is to one day be teaching at a college or university.

I am an educator by day and a theatre artist by night. I went to Iowa State University, where I earned my B.A. in Performing Arts - Acting & Directing. I spent the next 7 years traveling all around the United States working for a variety of theatre companies. In 2012, I made the decision to go to Graduate School as a next step toward my goal of teaching. I graduated with my M.F.A. in Theatre Arts. My long term goal is to one day be teaching at a college or university.

I have taught Play Structure & Analysis; Directing 1; and Introduction to Theatre for 8 semesters. While my long term goal is to one day be teaching at a college or university, I am currently building time in the classroom by working at a Before and After School care program in a local elementary. In addition to this, I feed my artistic side by working on local theatre projects around town. Having an artistic background gives me a creative way to problem solve.

Give me a try - I'm easy to talk to and willing to work through lessons with you!
