Bio

I'm a theater teacher at Woodrow Wilson High School, a large, diverse public school in Washington DC. I direct a musical in the fall, usually a Shakespeare in the spring and then the musical at then end of the school year at the nearby middle school. I've been teaching drama at Wilson for 6 years but I've been directing young people for about 20 years.

We are one of the few comprehensive public high schools in the District that has a theater program. Our school is undergoing renovation this year, but I am looking forward to being in a beautiful new theater space next year.
