"STC offers a world-class teaching artist training program. With access to experts at the top of their fields in the areas of drama, education and pedagogies; teaching artists are equipped with an extensive toolkit of dramatic conventions that have a multitude of applications. 

It is an empowering training program that inspires a love of literacy and play, and also gives a fresh perspective on how the creative arts are vital in making education more accessible.

I believe the training I received as part of the School Drama program has instilled in me the very processes and creative problem solving skills I use daily in my work not only as a teaching artist but as a director, dramaturg and creative artist. I couldn’t recommend this program more to anyone looking to boost their arsenal of creative skills in the classroom and in the workplace."
