    Why I am a Teacher: I went to school to become a graphic artist. I worked for twenty years in my field and loved every minute of being an artist. I wanted to share my love for my profession with others. Sometimes art is not seen as a desirable professional choice because of the term "starving artist." I have been so lucky to call being an artist, my profession for over thirty years now. I went back to school to become a teacher to give something back to the next generation that my high school art teacher gave to me. Which was a belief that I could make something I loved my career. Due to his encouragement, I get to wake up every day and love what I do for a living.

    Heroes: My father because he had a tough start. His father died when he was three and his mother put him in an orphanage. He was lucky because his Aunt took him and raised him. Even though he wasn't always shown love as a child in the beginning he never let a day go by that he didn't let my sister and I know just how much we were loved. He is our family's hero.

    Why I am a Teacher: I became a teacher because I believe that participating in theatre has the power to change lives and to liberate people to be more of themselves. A theatre teacher was the person who got me to participate in theatre and it changed the course of my life and gave me a sense of community in the process. It's great when people get to see theatre, but it's even better when they get a chance to DO it, even if they never plan to pursue a career in it. I love the art form that I teach and I love the community that it builds along the way.
