Why should a young person become a theatre teacher?

"I can't think of a better profession for a college student to go into if they want to work with kids. The social interaction you get with kids when you're in a theatre class is very fine-tuned. And every day you smile. Occasionally you cry, but you always achieve something."
—Betsy Cornwell

"I think it's the most rewarding thing a person can do. I think that teaching theatre teaches life and what better examples—to explore that through literature, to explore it through their emotions. You get close with kids and you connect with them in a way that very few people get to connect with them."
—Kris Andrews
