Ms. Leslie has had a HUGE impact on her middle school drama department, not only on middle school students, but also the high school drama department. Over the last five years, we have seen the number of better prepared students increase and a more focused dedication to the art of theater due to the program Christine and her students have built.
It has been my great pleasure to work with her and her students on a number of combined productions, and a vast majority of the students that you will see on stage, in competition and performing in the community are and will be from her program.
If you would like to see inspired, engaged and empowered students, check out what the middle school drama students are doing.
