Welcome to the world of Theatre and Film Studies! Mrs. Schwartz has worked with various theatrical companies in Maricopa County, both as an actor and a member of the crew. In the summer of 2014 she spent 3 weeks studying at the Globe Theatre in London, England where she worked with teachers from across the country. Mrs. Schwartz is a member of the Educational Theatre Association and has had her talents in theatrical make-up recognized in Dramatics magazine.
My Education and Professional Background
Mrs. Schwartz has a Bachelor's in Theatre and a Master's in Education. She is certified to teach both Theatre and Dance, and has run high school departments in both subjects. In addition to teaching at Basha High School, Mrs. Schwartz annually teaches workshops and master classes at the Educational Theatre Association national conference and the International Thespian Festival. Mrs. Schwartz is the sponsor for the International Thespian Society and the competitive improv team, S.I.C.
My Educational Philosophy
Theatre is the backbone of professional life. The ability to speak well in front of others, expand your personal boundaries beyond personal perceived limits, and an appreciation of how greatly the arts can affect the world around you is my goal for all students. I am privileged to help guide students through the wonderfully terrifying journey of high school.
