Colleen Aagesen brought her love of Shakespeare and her passion for learning to Springville Elementary School. She's the co-author of the book Shakespeare for Kids, published by Chicago Review Press in 1999. A winner of the Alice Buffett Outstanding Teacher Award in 2009, she brings her experience and energy to make Shakespeare come alive for contemporary kids.
She not only shares Elizabethan costumes, hats and props, but also teaches students how to sing Elizabethan music, distinguish the four Elizabethan humors, craft Shakespearean sentences of their own, and translate simple Shakespearean phrases.
Thanks for sharing your gifts with the Springville community, Colleen Aagesen!
