Mary Brown
Lead Teacher

Although Ms. Mary graduated from the University of Arizona with dual education degrees in liberal and fine arts, it wasn’t until early 2015 that joining Drama Kids enabled the merging of her two greatest passions: Drama and Teaching!

Ms. Mary is an avid proponent of providing fine arts exposure and experience to the youth of our increasingly-digital world. She feels that sound social and cultural development necessitates “unplugging” from the cycle of constant input! Through drama “play,” we encourage our children to explore and express themselves in real time, fostering genuine social interactions. Ms. Mary is grateful that Drama Kids can provide such opportunities, despite diminished political and financial support of the arts.

Her passion for “all things Drama” doesn’t cease at the close of the school week: you will often see Ms. Mary working at or performing for various theaters in the Puget Sound area.
