Thanks for stopping by! Here's a little bit of info about me...

Hi, I'm Raven Lawes and I'm excited to be joining Tison Middle School as the Theatre Arts teacher for the 2016-2017 school year! I've had a passion for theatre and the arts my entire life and love having the ability to share that love with the budding and inquisitive minds of young students! I received my BFA in Acting and Directing from Sam Houston State University (Huntsville, TX) and my MA in Acting from Birmingham City University (Birmingham, England). I have been teaching in many forms for the last ten years and am excited for my third year of formal teaching with the WISD family! Everyday is an opportunity to learn, grow, and stretch yourself as students, individuals, and artists. I'm so excited I get to take part in your growth and can't wait to see the wonderful work we're going to achieve this year!"Great theatre is about challenging how we think and encouraging us to fantasize about a world we aspire to."- Willem Dafoe
