    TAP Theatre II and IV 


    I completed an MA in Theatre at the University of Houston and have studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, Lincoln Center Theatre in New York, and Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. I have also earned degrees in Theatre from Hunter College and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, both in New York City, where I lived for six years. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and love of theatre with my students again this year at MHS.

    Along with Cherie Ducote Firmin, I am one of the co-sponsors of the MHS Drama Club. Between Talented Theatre and Drama Club, the MHS Theatre department mounts several productions annually. We end the year with our annual Film Fest. All events are open to the public, so please come and get involved. We have "work days" before every show where we need the help of our parent volunteers!

    While many of our students may never set foot on a stage beyond high school, the lessons we teach will help them increase and improve empathy, communication, creative problem solving, team building, and self-conficence.
