My name is Amanda Gutierrez and I teach THEATRE ARTS. I studied Theatre Arts at SHSU and I am a lifelong lover of the theatre. The theatre is a dying art and it is my job to keep it alive!
I expect our students to learn how to work as an ENSEMBLE (fancy word for team). Students will learn their strengths and the value of working as a unified force.
Students will learn the tricks of the trade onstage but also how to showcase THEIR best attributes. The theatre promotes self discovery and pushes young performers to achieve things they did not realize they could. I want students to leave my class glowing with confidence because they have proven to themselves how great they are.
Globally, the theatre is known as a place of acceptance. The theatre, MY CLASSROOM is a place for students to grow into their own and to be accepted no matter what their background or beliefs are. Students are expected to embrace diversity in theatre arts (and anywhere near or around Ms. G!). My students are the center of my universe and it is important to me that they are KIND to one another and treated with DIGNITY.
I am also a Lady Lynx Coach. GO LADY LYNX! I am honored to coach the best young ladies in WISD! This year I am coaching 8th grade girl's basketball and I am honored to lead our lady athletes to success.
