Theatre Arts Teacher

My Bio

Hello everyone!

I am excited to be stepping into my 3rd year at San Tan as the Theatre Arts Program Teacher. This year, I will be teaching Show Choir, Drama, Dance, Stagecraft and Very Well Minded. My goal with these classes is to help students grow artistically and personally through meaningful connection, growth mindset, joy, authenticity and curiosity. Our after-school Musical Theatre program holds auditions for two productions each year and are open to all San Tan students. I studied vocal and theatre performance at Scottsdale Community College and have been involved in theatre since a young age. I was initially training to become an opera performer before realizing my true love and passion is for teaching and mentoring young artists. I have experience in performing, directing or choreographing in over fifty productions at various schools and theaters across the valley. I look forward to continuing to grow our performing arts program here at San Tan!
