In the many years I have been directing both children and adults I receive the greatest satisfaction from teaching through my directing. I love to see the discovery of learning something new in each actor I work with. To be able to share my knowledge and expertise with an actor so they can grown and learn in the craft is profoundly rewarding.

I meet with the student to determine the level of experience and to get a clear understanding of the student's goals for the learning process. I work with the parent and/or student to determine a plan to achieve those goals.
