Mrs. Schuster was acting in the community but taught Spanish and Forensics at Nemaha Valley High School and Greensburg High School for 3 years. She then came back to Wichita and got her master’s degree in Theatre, because she already acted so much. That is what made her choose to be a drama teacher as a career.
She went to Friends University and received a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Spanish Education with a minor in music and theatre. She went there because her dad and grandfather attended there. She also went to WSU and got a master’s degree in Theatre. The reason she went to WSU, is at that time, they had a master of arts in theatre degree option.
Mrs. Schuster applied to South when she found out that South needed a part-time drama teacher because the drama department was so large. She applied and interviewed, and because of her Spanish degree, she was hired full time, to teach Drama, Spanish, and Forensics. She did this for four years at South before she changed to full-time drama.
She was nervous, at first, to come to South, because it had a larger amount of students than the other schools she taught at. She wasn’t scared though, because she taught for three years at other schools. She said she also feels like she understands the kids at South, because her background is similar, and she really appreciates the work ethic of the Titan students
Ms. Schuster didn’t get any adversary and thought there wasn’t as much in education. Mrs. Schuster loves acting. She really can’t pick her favorite subject to teach, but she really enjoys directing and theatre history. Her inspirational quote is “Don’t let people treat you like a yellow Starburst”.
