Theater is a collaboration. I focus on the skills and interests of my students to create the best theatrical version of our combined efforts. With kindness, humor, clear expectations, and consistency, I have seen exponential personal and artistic growth in my students.
For the 2019-2020 school year, Mara was the performing arts teacher for RSU 74 - serving Carrabec High School, Carrabec Community School, and Solon and Garrett Schenck Elementary Schools in Anson, Maine.
