About Your Instructor


instructor_tamiWhen you ask Tami’s drama students what they think of her, these are some of the descriptive words and phrases used:
Believes in Me, Passionate, Interested, Focus Individually, Good Listener, Humourous, Imaginative, Energetic, Knowledgeable, and FUN
"Drama Academy Mission Statement - FUN with a Purpose – Laugh Learn Inspire"
Nothing gives me greater pleasure then to be in the moment with children or adults who have a desire to learn and come out of their comfort zone. I know something is about to happen when I see it in their eyes, I live for that moment. For me, it all begins when there’s a connection, an understanding and a respect for each other – teacher/student. 
Once that is established anything is possible, I am blessed to have experienced so much in my professional career, I’m honored to give back and there’s no better way than through teaching and sharing my gifts.  My goal is to have each student improve self esteem, build confidence, strengthen conversational skills and develop social skills.  To do that I must be able to guide the student to a place of understanding where they can see their own self worth and unique identity, once this discovery is made, the student is on their way to living a more fulfilled life as they begin to live in their own uniqueness.  Seeing this happen in so many lives … is my greatest joy. - Tami Smith
