Chris teaches drama classes at schools, art and community centers throughout the greater Atlanta area. In these classes, she groups actors according to ability and, with her younger students, by age to achieve the most from each actor. Techniques include improv, theatre games, cold readings – all the while stressing process over performance so as not to pressure actors into any personal timetable for their individual results.
She has taught or has been an Educational facilitator at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre, Georgia Ensemble Theatre, Imagine It! – The Children’s Museum of Atlanta, Atlanta International Museum, Create, You Gotta Have Art, Open City Theatre, Pinckneyville Community Center, George Pierce Community Center, The Actors’ Edge, Ocee Arts Center, Family Keyboard Inc., Creative Studios of Atlanta, and at the Recreation Centers of both Roswell and Decatur, GA.
In 1998, she was recognized as the Outstanding Instructor by Gwinnett County Schools and the Recreation and Park Division for her contribution to the students and community.
