TSD 2017-2018: High School
Mr. Brian, High School Room 207
Classes: Theater Arts I, Theatre & Media Communications I, Essentials of English IV
Greetings! My name is Brian Cheslik and I am excited to begin a another great year where at TSD. I am a proud yankee from Columbus, Ohio. After obtaining my BA in English Lit from Gallaudet University in 2014, I moved to Baton Rouge, LA where taught 5th grade at Louisiana School for the Deaf for one year. In 2015, I relocated to Austin, TX to begin my dream job as a high school theatre teacher. In 2016, I obtained an MS degree in Deaf Education from Lamar University.
During this year, we will be rolling out a new theatre course called Theatre II. During this course, students will learn different methods of acting. They will put at least 2 one act plays and then one full two act play.
Grading Policy: NO LATE HOMEWORK IS ACCEPTED. NO EXCUSES or EXCEPTIONS. All homework is due on the day it is scheduled to be due.
IF you are absent for any reason (illness, personal, athletics or school related reason), you are responsible for contacting the teacher prior to returning to class to find out what the homework is. If you do not contact the teacher, and return to class without your homework, you will receive a zero grade. For unexcused absence, zero grades will be given for that date.
Follow us here to see what we're up to, in and out of the classroom.
We'll have project highlights, showcase studies, photos and videos of what we're learning and sharing in Rm. 207!
