Welcome to Fine Arts

 

Hello,


My name is Stephanie Di Maria. I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach so many students from grades 1-9 through the Drama program here at East Lake School.


I studied Child and Youth Care Counselling at both Mount Royal and Grant MacEwan Universities before pursuing an after-degree in Education at the University of Calgary. Before becoming a teacher, I worked in a variety of child and youth care settings: day camps, teaching dance and basketball, respite care, and residential care.


My fine arts experience extends back over 15+ years. I’ve performed in drama, dance, and choral productions. I’m very eager to be encouraging our students’ creative minds, while assisting them with building their confidence, collaborating with one another, and using drama as an outlet for their energy.


If you have any questions or concerns about what’s going on in drama class, or are interested in volunteering with upcoming drama productions, please feel free to email me at sdimaria@rockyview.ab.ca

 

Parent Tips

A family atmosphere prevails at our school with the education of your child being a shared responsibility.  We encourage your interest in what your child does each day and welcome your involvement in the classroom, school council and at home.

  1. Ask your child what they have been working on in drama class and encourage them to demonstrate the different techniques or styles.

  2. Assist your child in learning and memorizing their lines, and finding costumes for performances, when applicable.

  3. Support your child by attending school performances with them. They have worked very hard to become performance ready.
