UGS THANKS ALL THE TEACHERS EVERYWHERE!!!
>>This one is personal<<
In lieu of Teacher Appreciation Week, I want to take this time to honor a teacher that I believe, doesn’t get the accolades she deserves! She taught me a great deal about life, education, the art of performing and acting! She has been a HUGE influence on me. She has inspired me to reach for the stars, spread my wings and achieve! That teacher is none other than:
Karen Rolls Baker!
Karen has been teaching Theater for 15+ years and she loves it! She holds an A.A. Theater Degree, A.S. Musical Theater Degree, B.A. Theater Performance Degree, and a M.F.A. Directing Degree! She has traveled the world leaving her footprints along the way! She also holds the position of part-time lecture at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH).
I had the wonderful opportunity to be taught by her in the Spring semester of 2015, and it was the the best class I have ever took! She challenges you to ignite the fire that already burns inside of you, encourage you to always do your best, and pushes you to achieve your dreams! She was a teacher that actually made me want to learn! She was engaging, fun, and caring! I recall having to write journals EVERY SINGLE DAY! It was classwork, homework, and in your spare time work! At first I wasn’t too fond of writing about a specific topic, or an idea or even just creative writing. BUT, because of her I was able to morph into loving to write. Now if it is not clear, I became an entertainment writer that writes about specific topics, ideas and creativity. Go Figure, lol! She wears many hats from a loving wife, to an explorer, to a goofball, and of course teacher, but above all she is truly a spectacular individual. I, as well as UGS, applaud Karen for her devoted hard work in this teaching game!
We Appreciate You!!
