I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!
Matt, a student
I learned plenty!
Miranda, a student
The interactive qualities of the workshop made the class really exciting. It was great to be up and moving, active and creative. It gave me another strategy to use in the classroom. Easy to do, yet very power outcomes.

The kids watching and participating in her performance didn’t need to be told twice to listen; they
were riveted by Pease’s performance.

When you add movement to a poem, it makes it so much easier to understand.
Maddi, a student
The performance was superb! The children were engrossed from start to finish and wanted more.

It was very interesting to learn about all the different kinds of acting skills.
Kirk, a student
When I had to go up and say my part, I thought I would be nervous. When I get nervous, my voice gets deep and it didn’t get deep. I wasn’t nervous and I was surprised they didn’t make me nervous. I was comfortable. They probably made me conquer my fear on getting nervous in front of people.

THE LAST FUGITIVE SLAVE performance showed the emotional distress and physical consequences of the slavery institution; Robin incorporated students into her performance, directly having them see the importance of the teaching of history and culture by means of the theatrical arts.
Ms. Pease is a very committed artist who works quite well under the pressure of deadlines; I am amazed at how much she is able to accomplish in short periods of time. A strong commitment to excellence is apparent in all of her work. She is very good at keeping people focused on a task or goal and is adept at coordinating multiple simultaneous projects.

I thought it was neat how I could be like a real actress.

"You are so talented. I think it really hits home and gets the point against bullying across…with the Greek masks on each character pleading their case/cause. I love the interaction with the audience.”
Lisa Pawluk, Longfellow MIddle School
In addition to teaching in the schools, she is one of our best presenters of teacher professional development and is called upon regularly by other arts organizations for professional development.

Pease utilizo una mezcla de español e inglés para contar las historias y adaptarlas a su audiencia, la mayoría de ellos eran bilingues.

Your workshop with my 7th graders was not only outstanding but also memorable. After you left, our assistant principal stopped in and the kids insisted on showing him their Civil War poetry presentations. He was duly impressed.
