What is the best thing about being a drama teacher?

Theater teachers are special people. Sharing their passion for theater and the arts with their students is an incredible gift, and the impact of a great theater teacher extends far beyond the classroom.

So I asked the theater teachers: What is the best thing about being a drama teacher?

Being the only class of the day in which students can be themselves, they can create joy and make meaningful connections with other people. And I’m not just making assumptions – that’s what my students tell me. If that doesn’t fill my life with meaning and purpose, nothing will. (April M.)
