Ms. Lisa Barzano
My name is Lisa Barzano. Welcome to Sonoran Trails Middle School Drama. I am so happy to share my love for theatre with you. It is my goal to have us come together, where we can share and create theatre together. I attended Arizona State University and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelors Degree in Communication Studies. During my time at Arizona State University, I presented research findings on Interpersonal, Cultural, and Non-Verbal Communication and I was involved with the Arizona Communication Association. I then decided to pursue my teaching certification and received my Post Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education. I have taught many grade levels in elementary and secondary. I enjoy spending my time with my family and my two beautiful brown Newfoundlands, who are certified therapy dogs. We make visits to hospitals, schools, and other facilities to cheer people up.

My Educational Philosophy
As a drama teacher, my role is to be a facilitator for the students. I want them to explore, create, and have opportunities to grow and learn about different perspectives and try out different roles. My classroom is a safe place. A place to feel free to be themselves, incorporating their own imagination and individuality into action. This classroom is an upbeat, positive environment, where we can celebrate and encourage everyone. I will engage them in activities that will allow them to be creative, disciplined, flexible and work together as a team.
