It’s Time to Bring Back and Rethink Home Economic Classes

Sorry to burden you all again, but it's time to get out the soap box about education again. I've done a fair bit of stomping for the arts in past posts. Be sure to go back and check them out here and here and here. I am a definite fan of music and theatre in the… Continue reading It’s Time to Bring Back and Rethink Home Economic Classes

Lion King – a Circle of Life

As I contemplated what I should write about for Theatre Thursday, it dawned on me that I had not truly written about my experience with Lion King Jr. at Central High School.  A major slip on my part.  LOL. Okay... I wrote about painting the floor here.  I wrote about carving the foam set here.… Continue reading Lion King – a Circle of Life

We the People

This morning I observed a city council meeting that the entire senior and junior classes were invited to listen and to comment. A couple of things caught my attention. 1) It was apparent that many of these kids do not understand what city government can do vs what is the responsibility of other governmental agencies.… Continue reading We the People

Adulting 101 – Successful People Celebrate the Success of Others

How we handle other people's success, especially when things may not be going the way we hoped, is an indicator of our maturity and our own confidence and belief in ourselves. So... what can you do when the green-eyed monster of jealousy rears it's ugly head when you see others thrive with opportunities, get recognition,… Continue reading Adulting 101 – Successful People Celebrate the Success of Others

This past week I had the opportunity to attend Regional Thespian Competition and to give feed back to all of the tech entries of aspiring young theatre artists.  Most of the students attending Regional Thespian Competition enter acting and musical theatre pieces for the competition.

Adulting 101 – Fire Safety

Yesterday I had the State Fire Marshal visit my area of the school.  Although I do many things right when it comes to safety, I had a few things I needed to improve on.  At first it felt annoying and a bit nit-picky.  Then, I realized she was just concerned with safety.  I needed to… Continue reading Adulting 101 – Fire Safety

Adulting 101 – Real Adults Take Responsibility for Themselves

Okay... I am back on the soap box today for Thought Tuesday.  It's been a few months in development.  As I volunteer in the high school I am noticing an alarming trend within the adults-in-training that I serve.  This trend is often diagnosed as laziness.  However, I believe it is a lack of training... and… Continue reading Adulting 101 – Real Adults Take Responsibility for Themselves

All of my little actors will be in the full swing of rehearsals next week.  We will be diving into blocking and dance rehearsals.  "Off book" is in 2 weeks.  It's time to work on getting the lyrics to songs and the lines of their scenes down! Many young actors struggle with memorization.  However, learning… Continue reading Off Book Tutorial

Adulting 101 – Your High School Grades Matter

Nearly all high school seniors believe that they are going to college and bad grade won't stop them.  Have you listened to the "future plans" of graduates read as they walk across the stage at graduation?  Okay.  A large majority are heading to a community college because open admissions is a "thing."  But are they… Continue reading Adulting 101 – Your High School Grades Matter
