Welcome to Drama!
My name is Ms. Hilliard and I am thrilled to be teaching Drama at Koontz Intermediate School. I taught high school and middle school drama for 8 years and have been involved in community theatre for over 20 years as an actress, designer, educator and director. After starting my family (1 incredible husband and 2 amazing daughters) and being very active throughout the community, my path has brought me back to teaching and sharing with young people the artform I love.
6th grade students, who are not in Band, meet for Drama for a 9 week block to explore pantomime, improvisation, theatre history, story dramatization, short scenes, design and theatre criticism.

"No day, but today!" - Jonathon Larson
"I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being. "
“I believe arts education in music, theater, dance, and the visual arts is one of the most creative ways we have to find the gold that is buried just beneath the surface. They (children) have an enthusiasm for life a spark of creativity, and vivid imaginations that need training – training that prepares them to become confident young men and women.”
