A Holistic Approach to Teaching Theatre and Film Appreciation

I have worked as a teacher, director, and writer in Theatre and Cinema Arts Education for over thirty years. In 2006, I was the initial recipient of the Emery Weiner School’s Rav Preida Award for Teaching Excellence. In 2012, I took a break from teaching to earn my BA and MA in Cinema Studies at Columbia College Chicago and The University of Chicago, respectively. Though many of my former students have gone on to forge successful careers in various capacities of theatre, movies, and TV, I strongly believe in the importance of Arts training as essential preparation for all professions.
