Ms. Natalie MacLachlan
I was born and raised in Boise, I recieved a BA in Theatre Arts: Directing and Performance from Boise State University and then completed an acting conservatory program at the Stella Adler Art of Acting Studio in Los Angeles, after which I lived and worked in the industry in Los Angeles doing film, Theatre and television work. After getting my dream job at Lake Hazel teaching Drama, I earned my MA in Education, also from Boise State University.
I teach Drama 1 and 2, Stage Craft and 6th grade Exploratory Art.
I believe that The Arts teach students valuable life skills in communication, creativity and critical thinking. I hope to inspire my students to tell stories, expreses themselves, appreciate the world around them, and be willing to grow and change continually and with grace.
Please look under the Class Documents tab for ALL class work including: Power Points, Worksheets, Assignement Descriptions, and Rubrics. Acting Classes are coded as ACT, Stage Craft is SC and Exploratory Art is EXA. The documents are in the general order that the Units are taught, but not tied to a specific date. You may look at the Calendar or Grade Book on Power School periodically for due dates etc. The due dates are often very flexible and fluid in my classroom due to the project-based nature of these courses.
Feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns, I'm looking forward to a WONDERFUL year!
