Got to host my first interactive workshop on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet with James Ward Elementary's 8th grade classes. Thank you to English Teacher (and aunt) Denise Rewers for inviting me in! Thankful to have had the opportunity to help dissect Shakespeare and make it a little less daunting. Hoping to continue this series!
