With 20 years of experience as a teacher I hope by now I know a little about working with teenagers. I will fight solidly against any negative stereotyping of teenagers as “sulky, insolent, uneducated, IT-infatuated, hormonal monsters” I know FAR too many who aren’t! and have worked with so many who are precisely the opposite!
I have a BA Hons and an MA in education, I also have an adult teacher’s cert and several other silly bits of paper, but more importantly I have directed 9 musical theatre productions, voice acted and TV presented and run many residential workshops and theatre masterclasses.
I absolutely LOVE working on theatre projects with dedicated young people, and burst with pride when I see their evolution.
