Teaching youth in any kind of creative class can be the most rewarding job you will ever have.  If taught in a supportive and nurturing way, art is transformative and can change lives by providing a place for a child to feel confident, creative, resourceful and without the paralyzing fear of failure or judgment. I had phenomenal mentors as a young art educator, and now I'd like to pay it forward and do the same for developing directors instructors and teachers. 

Teaching Youth 

Words from a developing teaching artist about her experience with mentorship: 

“I am an up-and-coming acting coach and musical theatre educator in San Antonio, Texas. While spending some one-on-one time with Elena, I gained a significant amount of knowledge to aid in my own lesson plans and future advancement as a teacher and actor. She is a great mentor and I am very excited to continue to learn from her amazing and hard earned experience. “
