Meghan Shea MFA
Talented Theatre Teacher
Salmen High School (base)
Boyet Jr. High (Mondays and Wednesdays 2nd - 6th hour)
Meg Shea is thrilled to return to Salmen High School. During her 4 year absence from the Talented Arts Program she achieved her MFA in Theatre Performance from the University of New Orleans, travelled a decent chunk of the world, and worked in local and professional theatres. Ask her about her travels, she loves telling stories. Mrs. Shea is a product of the Talented Theatre Program. She grew up in Covington and studied theatre under the great George Sanchez when she was in high school. She has learned so much from her teachers, Larry Silverberg, Lisa Konaplisky, Chip Bolcik, Aimee Hayes, James Yeargain, David Hoover, Henry Griffin - this list could go on and on; and she feels challenged her to rise to their standards daily.
Mrs. Shea has known that teaching theatre was her calling since she was eleven. She made a sign she put on the road outside the woods near her home, the sign read; "Drama Camp - $50" with a giant arrow just pointing to the woods. Where she was, lemonheads in hand, awaiting her clientell. No one actually paid her the money then but she still has the IOU's from her siblings and the neighborhood kids she encouraged to enact elaborate-candy-fueled stories.
Mrs. Shea now lives in Slidell with her husaband, Ziggy the dog, and two cats, Winston Churchill (a family name, not a homage) and Oyster PoBoy.
