She holds Qualified Teacher Status, a Distinction from a Masters Degree course in Performance Research from Central School of Speech and Drama and a First Class Degree in Literature and Theatre Studies from the University of Warwick. Jo is passionate about teaching that helps students realise the value of their own creativity. Drama can help challenge students' perceptions about themselves and the world around them and celebrate both the successes and failures in performance, helping the students to grow. She believes outstanding Drama teaching equips students with a joy and confidence that radiates in every role, character or part they play. This can be life-changing!
