Drama is a fantastic medium to connect and learn from each another. I’m truly honoured to be joining the LTPSS team this year as your new drama teacher.
I am from Canada – growing up in a small city just outside of Toronto. However, I have been living and teaching in Hong Kong for over 10 years. With a passion for Theatre and Film studies, I bring a background of an actor, stage manager and director to the classroom. It is my hope that students will realise that drama is more than a creative subject, but a tool to enhance our everyday life.
William Shakespeare famously wrote the words,“All the world’s a stage.” Whether you are a student, a child, a leader, a teacher, or friend; we all play different roles in different communities and towards different people. And within those roles, we all have personal challenges to overcome. Beyond a classroom subject, drama is a modality to help us understand ourselves and build important life skills. Drama is a way to sustain our mental health and wellbeing.
Outside of the school, you may catch me stage managing or acting in local theatre productions.
