ugly picture of me


I am very excited for this school year.  There are many changes.
First of all, I just got married.  I used to be know as Ms. Blackburn.  Now I have a wonderful husband and five loving step-children. 

Secondly, I moved classrooms.  I am now the princess in the tower.  :) You will find me, literally, in the tower - room 400.  I am teaching two sections of 8th grade English and one section of 9th grade English from this room.  The Creative Com. and Intro to Theatre classes will meet there in the beginning of the year, but we will mostly be in the auditorium for classes.

For those who don't know me, I am VERY passionate about the theatre arts.  I love every aspect; acting, directing, building, stage managing, and costuming. I have a BSE in Theatre Education and English Education.  I earned my MA in Theatre Arts in 2011 from University College Cork, Ireland.  I am very active in the community arts having taught and directed at UW-Manitowoc as well as being on the Board of Directors for Masquers Inc. Currently, I am the Vice-President of Masquers Inc.  Just recently I directed the Masquers' production ofJesus Christ Superstar.  

I am also the play director for both Wilson Jr. High and Washington Jr. High. 

The Washington school play will be January 28th and 29th.
Auditions will be held in late October. 

The Wilson school play will be April 28th and 29th.
Auditions will be held in early February.
