In 2001 and 2002 I co-taught Theatre Games for 4th, 5th and 6th grade at the Piven Theater Workshop in Evanston, IL. I had "grown up in the work" and been trained in their unique and exceptional blend of story-theater, improvisation, scene-study and mime techniques. After undergrad I returned as a teacher where I worked with fellow teacher and senior teacher advisors to formulate effective class structure, lesson plans, worked with 12 children per class aged 9-11 teaching theatre games, coaching scenes, and leading group exercises.  For more about Piven visit: http://piventheatre.org/
