It was very interesting to learn about all the different kinds of acting skills.

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

It was an amazing experience because they got me to come out of my shell.

"The kids were jumping out of their seats to participate in the show. The parents were pleased that, by the time the kids had the mystery solved and the show was over, they learned about the water cycle, including precipitation, collection, and evaporation."

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.
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.

I liked the fact that we worked together and the results were amazing.

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!

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.

I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!

I loved how you were interactive with everyone.
Shaylin, a student
She has a seemingly magical ability to reach a young audience, draw them in, and keep them engaged...from fidgety four-year olds to skeptical fourteen-year olds, and she captivated and entertained as she educated.
Sarah Ehlinger Dover Massachusetts
The performance was superb. The children were engrossed from start to finish. They wanted more!
