Theatre Games for the Classroom: A Teacher's Handbook by Viola Spolin
I am an educator with 30 years experience spanning PS though college. I began teaching in Louisiana in the early 1990s, moved to Las Vegas where I began teaching theatre. While running the theatre program, I completed a doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction and moved to teaching future teachers at Ripon College (WI) for over a decade. I have recently retuned to the classroom- this time working with elementary drama students in Washington, D.C. I balance my teaching time with consulting work in educational research, including work with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts where I also serve as a volunteer.
