CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas –Alison Frost, Assistant Professor of Theatre at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, has received the prestigious University Educator of the Year award from the Texas Educational Theatre Association (TETA).
“Since coming to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi as a Visiting Assistant Professor, I have invested so much of myself into teaching and bringing my experiences in professional theatre as well as my experiences as a theatre educator to our students,” said Frost. “I certainly don’t teach for the awards, but this award comes from an organization with which I’m honored and proud to be connected. It’s a wonderful feeling.”
Including Frost’s award, the Department of Theatre & Dance now has four Educator of the Year award recipients. J. Don Luna, Dr. Terry Lewis, and Kelly Russell are all previous award winners.
Frost believes that theater offers options for all types of students ranging from building sets and designing costumes to singing and acting in a lead role.
Frost directed such productions such as: Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” “Water by the Spoonful,” and the musicals “Urinetown” and “Cabaret” at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
The TETA, Inc. strives to use all the resources available to strengthen teachers, and build on existing programs around the state to continue to improve the quality of theatre education in the state of Texas.
