About


Building on a foundation of five years’ classroom experience (High School /Middle School ELA and Drama, 5th/6th Grade ELA) and drawing on a love for show business Storyteller Tim Lowry has been an independent teaching artist for 19 years. Using the dramatic arts as a vehicle for creative teaching and student exploration Tim integrates education standards from the Performing Arts, English Language Arts, and Social Studies strands. Education units run the gamut from shadow puppetry incorporating Native American star stories and scientific facts about the constellations to dramatic radio plays encompassing facts about World War II and showcasing student writing to coaching sessions with high school drama students studying physical and vocal characterization techniques. No matter the subject matter, there is always an emphasis on literacy. Creative writing, problem solving, team work, and independent study are also integral parts of the units that Tim creates for the classroom. When collaborating with classroom teachers Tim’s ultimate goal is to leave the classroom teacher with a unit theme, lesson plans, and all necessary resources to duplicate the creative experience again and again independent of the artist/specialist.
