With Rachel, the Kindergarten students at Canyon energetically learn about theatre through games, stories and age appropriate literature. Some of the features of this 2014-2015 school year will include Shakespeare, Mother Goose and their own stories put on stage. You haven’t seen an Old Mother Hubbard story like this one promises to be!
Rachel began her ‘arts in education’ career in New Mexico, where she taught the classics to young people as part of the American Southwest Theatre Company, In L.A., Rachel had some Early Education training at UCLA, and has worked with the Los Angeles Children's Theatre, PS Arts (current) and Santa Monica Playhouse where she is still associated.
