Mrs. Jaime Joyce
I am so excited to be in my sixth year at Prosper High School, and my eigth year teaching. I teach Technical Theatre 1, Theatre 2/3, and Junior Varsity Acting Production, as well as manage the auditorium and its calendar, along with the students that run all of the fine arts events, known as the Eagle Stage Crew. So if working behind the scenes in an environment that reflects what one would experience in a professional setting appeals to you, then come and see me! In my spare time, I enjoy reading and traveling, spending time with my husband Brian, and our cats Oreo and Keanu.
Originally from Wichita, Kansas, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Education, Speech and Theatre, Secondary Education, from Wichita State University, Go Shockers! I recently received my Master of Arts in Theatre from the University of Houston, Go Coogs! I have also been involved in both community and professional theatre. I was previously at Mesquite ISD, where I taught Theatre 1, Technical Theatre 1-4, and was the Technical Director. In addition to studying in Chicago and New York as part of my Masters program, I was able to add studying at the RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) and the Globe theatre, in London, United Kingdom this past summer. Throughout the year I attend TETA Summerfest and Theatrefest.
Tutorials are available as needed and can be offered before or after school or at a time convenient for both parties in room 1168G. Mondays and Wednesdays I am available for tutoring from 7:55 - 8:25 am. Tutoring after school is by appointment only, due to my after school obligations.

Each student is responsible for earning hours outside of class for each semester. These are due prior to the end of each semester, and are a test grade. Students may earn hours for completing various tasks or working on various projects throughout the year. More information on how they can accumulate these points will come later. A theatre teacher MUST sign off on the hours and the student must keep track of their own hours.
Technical Theatre 1 students require 10 hours each semester
Theatre 2/3 students require 20 hours each semester
JV Acting Production students require 20 hours each semester.
Fall Final Exam Schedule
Dates and schedule is TBD. Early release on Friday December 20, 2019.
Spring Final Exam Schedule
Dates and schedule is TBD. Early release on Friday May 22, 2020.
Students may be graded periodically over projects, quizzes, and other daily work that is completed in class. Whenever we have a project, students will receive a rubric, a breakdown over what the project covers, and any other materials that may be useful. Whenever possible, I convert these documents electronically and place them in Google Classroom. If the need for dual language accommodation is needed, those needs are met as much as possible. Students are encouraged to be their own advocate in every way. If they feel their needs are not being met, please speak with me and we will work together to find a resolution.
