Hello! My name is Amanda Driesen and I am the K-5 Drama Specialist here at MCA. This is my 6th year teaching theater to your students. I even have some 5th grade students this year that I have taught since they were in Kindergarten!
I enjoy watching my students grow into creative thinkers, risk takers and first time performers as they spend time in my classroom navigating the art form of drama. Students in all my classes build community through drama activities, strengthen their performance skills of speaking and body movement; as well as learn how to be respectful audience members. We have some very creative minds here at MCA! My students are the reason I come to work everyday, they are so important to me.
My classroom is open to you to visit if you are ever at school.
