Pedagogy, artistry, and advocacy are the three pillars that the Educational Theatre Graduate Program at City College of New York believe make students effective teachers. I have always loved sharing and learning in an artistic environment, but City College gave me the tools to feel grounded within the classroom. As I prepare to graduate May 2015, I am grateful for this program's commitment in providing me with a strong pedagogical background that is supported by my love for my artistry that is worthy in being shared with peers, professors, administrators, and students.
Here are a few moments of my time at CCNY. #CCNYPREPARES
