Arts & Diverse Ability Educator
I'm currently a teaching artist with the Chicago Children's Theatre, leading innovative online education in which youth ages 4-12 create original works of theatre.
In the past, I've taught in CPS schools as a full time Diverse Learning and Theater educator. I developed a trauma-responsive curriculum that enabled youth to create their own plays. My students have written, directed, designed and acted in over 16 original productions.
I founded Backyard Chicago Ensemble to bring after-school theater education to arts-deprived schools and devise theater work in inter-generational ensembles.
