RESPECT Actor-Educator Presents at National Council for Teachers of English Conference

On November 16, 2012 our Actor-Educator Greg traveled with Avenue Scholars Talent Advisor, Ferial Pearson to Las Vegas to present at the National Council for Teachers of English Conference. Ferial and Greg presented Standing Up: Using Theater To Empower Students to Create a Positive, Safe, and Inclusive School and Classroom Environment for approximately 25 professionals. This session was based around an artist in residency conducted by Greg and Haley with Ralston High School’s Avenue Scholars in early 2012. Participants learned the ways in which RESPECT’s unique theatrical experiences can help students explore and practice ways to keep their school safe for all students.
