Drama Teacher:
You are not alone

Actual Questions from the Drama Teacher Academy Facebook Group

The Drama Teacher Academy is a professional development site specifically for middle school and high school drama teachers.

You are caught in the middle. You want to create confident, well-rounded students. You want your students to feel your lessons are valuable. But you also want to satisfy your administrators. You have requirements to fulfill.

You love teaching, you love inspiring your students but you are struggling to get everything done in the time allotted.

Sound familiar?

The good news is that there doesn’t have to be a trade off. This isn’t an “either or” situation: your students or your administration. You are in the right place to do both.
