Welcome to the website for Mrs. Justice's Theatre classes! The break down of each class is currently on my Weebly site, which you can access using the link below.
This is my 9th year to teach, and I've been at WHS/NGC for the duration of my teaching career. For my first 6 years, I taught English, but after 5 years helping out after school with our theatre program, I made the transition to theatre full-time 2 years ago.
My greatest hope in teaching is to help my students find self expression through theatre and to see them create a piece of art that allows them to feel pride in their hard work and dedication. I believe that the Fine Arts are the cornerstone of what makes us human because, as a good friend of mine often quotes, "The Earth without Art is just.. Eh."
My favorite part of working with high school students is learning about each individual and helping them see that each of them has something unique and important to contribute to the class setting. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing young adults discover their voice the first time. Teenagers haven't yet failed to surprise me with their insights, and I hope they never do!
I graduated #7 in my class from Weatherford High School in 2004. From there, I went to the University of Texas at Arlington where I began my college career as a Radio/TV/Film major before eventually landing on a major in English with an emphasis in Secondary Education. I graduated magna cum laude from UTA in 2008 and was voted as one of the outstanding Seniors in the College of English. I am certified to teach both 8-12 English Language Arts and EC-12 Theatre Arts. My background in theatre is largely a practical education from my experiences assistant directing in the WHS Theatre program for the last 5 years and from my long time participation in local community theatre, where I've been able to explore everything from acting to directing to running our theatre camp to serving on the governing board.
