Kirstin the Teacher
Kirstin has been working in higher ed for the last six years. She has taught courses varying from Intro to Theatre to Theatre in the Modern World to Advanced Acting. Kirstin has taught workshops in voice and movement, she has run talent reviews and has mentored many students on working professionally in the field of theatre and prepared them for higher education programs.
As an educator Kirstin believes in experience over lecture based learning. Which is why in her classroom you will rarely see her at the center. Peer lead group activities and collaborative creative performances take centre stage and the students have raved about the experience since day one.
