Hi there! I'm Corby. I'm a newbie TD at a 3 year old high school in North Florida. Actually, pretty much the primary director there for the time being. I got my BA in Theatre Arts back in '02 and worked as an actor until '05 when I found myself slightly knocked up (okay, so there's no slightly about it!). So after a brief stint as kindergarten teacher I finally found a position teaching theatre. Right now I'm teaching Acting 1, Stagecraft 1, and Adv. Stagecraft. Next year I'm adding Adv. Acting and co-teaching the auditioned dance troupe (I have 18 years of dance exp.), the director wanted them to be able to create their own sets and also they need help emoting on stage. Plus the co-teach will allow me to have more time to focus on maintaining and improving our theatre. I never really intended to teach this young. I'm only 27. I wanted more life experience. I also never expected that I'd ever land a position as TD. I was always much more of a designer whenever I did do anything technical. Never paid attention to the logistics of it as long as it looked like my models. Yeah, TOTALLY regretting that now. I'm frantically schooling myself on constuction, lighting, and sound. I was so stinkin happy when I came across this forum. It's such a wealth of info. Anyhoo, I've rambled long enough. I'm sure ya'll be hearing quite a bit from me in the near future.
