About Ms. Metz
Hello! I am Missy Metz and I have been the Drama Teacher at Coonley Elementary since 2012 teaching Kindergarten thru 8th grade. I am from the southside of Chicago and attended Monmouth College studying English, Theatre and Education. I have a passion for all things theatre. I also enjoy reading mostly English Literature, seeing plays around Chicago, spending time with my miniature dachshund(Harrison George), and traveling. I am a vegetarian and a huge animal lover!
I love teaching Theatre to our Coonley students as well as working on strengthening each student's Public Speaking skills! I love watching students find their voice and confidence on stage. I strive to make each of my students feel comfortable speaking in front of their peers and provide them the tools to be a strong speaker in front of larger audiences. I want my students to feel comfortable expressing themselves through speaking, moving, and acting.
Along with teaching Drama/Theatre Arts at Coonley. I have directed our Spring Musical each year and have directed multiple middle school Shakespeare performances as well as our classroom productions.
I look forward to another fantastic year at Coonley Elementary. I hope to meet you all throughout the year. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns do not hesitate to reach out to me.
