When you add movement to a poem, it makes it so much easier to understand.

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

"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
Robin is celebrated in the community for her teaching, her direction, her performances, her entrepreneurial skills, and her overall expertise. I highly recommend her.
Ray Gargano, Victoria Theatre
Thanks! We need more PD like this in order to motivate our students to actively participate and learn concepts in various ways. Bring Robin back!

I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!

Robin Pease was the keynote speaker, a constructive and inspiring addition to the festival....she really held the attention and interest of the entire auditorium. Teachers came away with a better understanding of how to enhance storytelling with dramatic arts principles, and use stories from diverse cultural backgrounds to create activities that address learning standards.

I don’t usually gush, but this was FABULOUS! For 45 minutes, Robin Pease held her audience
spellbound (students and adults alike). She skillfully created an awareness of cultural differences while augmenting the children’s awareness of the even greater degree to which we are all alike.
Lynne Lipcon, Young Audiences Massachusetts
Learning has never been such fun and so moving. It is a great way to learn history!

I really enjoyed being able to work with a group to being a poem to life using drama.
Kayli, a student
It was an amazing experience because they got me to come out of my shell.

Being that many of our students from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, France, Russia and Turkey have limited verbal and listening skills, the visual part of the program created a captive audience.

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.

I believe the show clearly demonstrates that the "Founding Fathers" based many portions of the Constitution on their knowledge of Iroquois government, rather than on the Magna Carta, as textbooks often claim.

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.
