    Mr. Volpe Profile

    Post  eileenchow on Fri Dec 04, 2009 3:26 am

    Whenever we see the amazing plays that Advanced Drama Department (ADD), Theater II, or any theater class in general, we don’t usually think about the one who is responsible for putting the whole show together—the sole ringleader behind these performances. Not enough credit is given to Mr. Steven Volpe, drama teacher extraordinaire. He is the one that dedicates much of his time to making sure that the performances are up to par, the one who helps unlocks the hidden acting potentials within students. It is fitting to take a closer look at Mr. Volpe himself and give him his turn in the spotlight.
    Before arriving to teach in AHS, Mr. Volpe was a professional actor, who appeared in various TV shows, films, musical theaters, and plays. Amongst his impressive performances, Mr. Volpe appeared even in TV shows such as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Las Vegas”, and “Will and Grace”. Mr. Volpe majored in both theater arts and English and spent two years teaching English literature before moving to drama. AHS is where Mr. Volpe received his very first teaching job; a new performing arts center was being built, and Mr. Volpe was invited by principal to a dynamic drama program. While still attending college, Mr. Volpe was a subbed as a teacher for AHS for three years. He says that the different interactions with the “students helped shape path of becoming teacher.” Since he initially could not decide which grade level he wished to teach, Mr. Volpe experimented subbing various grade levels, from elementary school to high school. After settling down in AHS, Mr. Volpe finds himself so very “fortunate to be [able to teach] here.”
    Mr. Volpe feels that his responsibilities as a drama teacher includes inspiring “creativity, organizational skills, performance, technique, etiquette” within students. Mr. Volpe feels that organization is an exceptionally “major factor [of drama because of the] rehearsal schedules involved.” Juggling five different drama related classes consisting of two periods of Theater I, one period of intermediate drama and ADD, and one stagecraft class. Mr. Volpe passes on his knowledge of many different drama aspects to his students. Learning how to build sets and props create costumes, making posters, increase publicity, and properly work lighting, are just some elements that students touch upon in Mr. Volpe’s drama classes. Mr. Volpe truly finds joy in teaching students drama; he sees it “rewarding to share [the] gift of art with students and to help them, guide them, and see their own interpretations.” Mr. Volpe strives to really take each year’s drama classes to the next level as he “make[s] it bigger and bigger with...[larger] sets, different projects...[it promotes] more student interest in drama every year.”
    Favorite parts about drama, what he like best about drama (need info for this)

    I need more info....I'll add in when I get more.
