Welcome to Leadership and Drama!

Teacher Bio:

     
Hello,
I am Verla Hutchins, Corwin's new Leadership/Drama teacher. The Leadership/Drama class is a performing arts class at Corwin and I am honored to have the opportunity to develop an appreciation and excitement for the stage like never before. Students will learn how to present, speak, project and leave the insecurities of adolescence off the stage. This class is an exciting, active opportunity to explore the world of theater, set building, costume creation, script writing and performing. For the 8th graders, students will write and direct original work using various media enhancements. The students are my first passion and teaching my second. Through these passions, my goal is to build the desire to be life long learners. I am certain that with some hard work and a little creativity, we are destined to have an amazing year. Please stop by and introduce yourself to me, my door is always open. You may contact me via E-mail at; verla.hutchins@pueblocityschools.us.
