For thirty years Marcia has been a professional educator specializing in active and collaborative learning. She has taught numerous subjects including math. She “dreams” curriculum planning and is constantly innovating in her own classroom. For example, rather than teach a lecture/test-oriented theater appreciation class, Marcia had her students create their own theatrical work-in-progress, "The Great Modern Greek Global Warming Goat Song (goat song is original meaning of "tragedy")." They watched modern plays which had adapted Greek devices and then "stole” them for use in their own work. Students formed a real bond; they were so engaged that they wanted to continue the work even the though class had ended. Marcia has a knack for figuring out how you can take any subject matter and teach it creatively, actively and relevantly. A professional mediator and group facilitator, Marcia has a BFA in Theater and Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Master's in Teaching from Colorado State University. She also teaches acting, improvisation, listening and mediation at Clark.
She has facilitated our Listening Salons and Conversation Cafes.
