Mrs. Pearson's Theater Arts Class


My name is Bethany Pearson and I am new to the Jaguar Family at Cedar Valley Middle School. As stated above in my heading, I am a new theatre arts teacher. I am so very excited to be apart of this theatre legacy and ready to contribute to the greatness. I wanted to take this time to give a brief introduction of myself and where I came from.

I am originally from Iowa. I received my undergraduate degree from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa where I majored in Education. Right out of college I started working for the Des Moines Public School District (One of the largest in the state) as the district's first middle school drama teacher. I built and ran the drama program for three years. It was successful up until it was cut due to lack of funding.

I left the district and moved to Augusta, Georgia where my husband was stationed in the Navy. I spent the last three years as a part time substitute for the Columbia County School District. As I was subbing I went back to school to get my Master's in Public Administration with Augusta University.

In March, my husband and I said good bye to the military life and said hello to civilian life here in Austin, Texas. I am blessed to call Cedar Valley Middle School my new home. I cannot wait to get to know all the talented students and their families throughout this first year. This website is used as a road map of sorts to keep track of dates and other useful information from the class.If there are any questions or concerns that you may have please feel free to contact me through email or by phone. I will be glad to help.

Thank you so much and let's have a great year! Go Jags!
