A teacher of the Arts is like no other

2/05/2014

I am the new drama teacher. A teacher of the Arts is like no other, we have the opportunity to not only discover artistic ability, but develop it. We are fortunate enough to see students grow with technical skill, confidence, ability, communication skills, teamwork and so on. The arts enable the freedom of discovery, equipping students with relevant skills to accommodate a vastly growing, innovative society. 

With such great responsibility I aspire to become an active and respected role model for all my students. Establishing a professional, yet friendly, rapport with my students will allow me to aid them in achieving up and beyond their wildest expectations. It is with great honour I take on the role of the only drama teacher at Charters Towers State High School. I cannot express enough the dedication, effort and support I am willing to provide to anyone involved in my new high school teaching career. As a first year graduate teacher, who has just moved to this town I am more than eager to be a part of the larger community to enable enriching experiences for my students both within and outside the classroom walls. I appreciate the support and I look forward to meeting all of you as I progress on my teaching journey.
