About Mrs. Davis…

I am entering by 5th year teaching Theatre and my 3rd year teaching at Whitt. I am from Fort Worth, TX and a proud graduate of Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA. I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 6th grade daughter. My favorite hobbies are to attend plays, sing karaoke, watch movies, and listen to all types of music.

About Theatre Class…

The WFAA Theatre experience is designed to help students develop self-confidence, self-esteem, poise and strength of character. The Theatre department works closely with the Radio/TV/Film and Music departments providing students the opportunity to explore various types of acting, behind the scenes production work, and musical theatre.
