You may not have heard that job title before – that’s because we made it up – so let me tell you a bit about how Lori’s past and present will contribute to Reach’s future!
A 2012 graduate of Davidson College, Lori brings experience as a Teaching Artist at Actors Theatre of Louisville and Imagination Stage. She also works with a great local nonprofit, Young Playwrights’ Theater.
Using her experience in theater and dance instruction, Lori will help Reach brings its curriculum alive. She will contribute to curriculum development efforts and support Program Instructors in the use of arts-integrated engagement strategies. She’ll also lead the effort to turn our children’s books into Readers Theater scripts for use in elementary school classrooms. Basically, her role is to use her creative instincts to make our curriculum and our instruction even more engaging to the tutors and students we serve.
Lori joined us in the Fall of 2013 as a Program Instructor co-leading our work at Eastern Senior High and Payne Elementary. As she transitions to our “central office” team, her experience as an instructor makes her uniquely qualified to ensure all our curricular materials and tools are aligned to support excellent instruction in the classroom.
Welcome Lori! We’re thrilled to have you join our team.
