Meet your Drama teacher: Ms. Kate McKnight. Please note: even though I'm married, I use my maiden name, so I'm not Mrs. McKnight. I use the title Ms. ("Miz")

This would be my 30th year as an educator, but I had a few years when I did other things. (I even briefly owned a restaurant in Downtown Fresno.) I've taught theatre arts at the middle school, high school and university levels. Previously, I was the Visual & Performing Arts Coordinator for Fresno Unified, and an arts magnet high school director and assistant principal in Coronado. I hold a BA in Acting from UC Santa Cruz, and a MA in Education from CSU Fresno, as well as a teaching credential and an administrative credential.

I am also a Lecturer in the Theatre Arts & Dance Dept. at Fresno State; I act regularly for local theatre companies, direct at least two productions each year, and do occasional work as a voiceover actor. Teaching Drama is one of my long-time passions.

And, I love hats.
