Education: New York University - B.S., Educational Theatre

“First and foremost, I bring a sense of excitement. I love theatre and my biggest wish is that those who come to the drama program understand how easy it is to love theatre.”
 
How did you decide to explore education as a career path?
Initially, I went to school for musical theatre and I realized that competitive atmosphere was not for me. Since kindergarten, as weird as it is, I've always wanted to be a math teacher. I always thought being a teacher was the greatest job ever. New York University has an educational theatre program which is not only about teaching theatre but also using theatre as a catalyst in core curriculum as much as possible through process drama.

At CH-CH, you have also taken on the role of Director of the Drama Performance Program. What do you bring to this role?
First and foremost, I bring a sense of excitement. I love theatre and my biggest wish is that those who come to the drama program understand how easy it is to love theatre. I want to show them how much it can change you personally. It can make a person better, more creative, more able to communicate, more open to social situations and braver. You have to be brave to be onstage and make bold choices.
