What is the Drama Teacher Academy?

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.

The Drama Teacher Academy is a professional development site specifically for drama teachers. It’s the place where you can become your best to do the best for your students.

You can take a course on how to teach mask. You can download a playwriting lesson plan or a full-year curriculum. You can add to your resource library with handouts, guides, and videos.

You can also talk to other drama teachers through the private DTA Facebook Group. Wouldn’t you love to ask a question or share a triumph and have a whole group of people know exactly what you’re talking about?

Who is behind the Drama Teacher Academy?

We’re Lindsay Price and Craig Mason. We have a long relationship with educational theatre. 27 years ago we started Theatrefolk, a publishing house specializing in plays and educational resources for schools and student performers.

We are passionate about helping Drama Teachers. We believe in the importance of drama in the schools and drama as a vital part of creating well-rounded, well-educated students.

We’ve met thousands of drama teachers and listened to what they want and need. It was because of you that we decided to build the Drama Teacher Academy.

Our educational resources extend beyond handouts and e-books. We have a 15 year history of teaching in classrooms, conferences and festivals across Canada and the US.
