One of the greatest teachers I've ever had. She is like a mother figure to all her students and helps create some of the best performances all around.

I graduated some time ago, and was not among Ms. Colson's chosen few. The decisions that she made impacted my life very negatively. She is one of the two worst teachers I've ever had.

Motherly is putting it minimally. She makes sure you are healthy, well rested, well fed, etc. But she also expects you to work hard. it's not just a "take an easy elective" class, she really wants to teach you about acting and movement.

Joanie Cakes, where do I start? If you're looking for the most helpful and caring teacher at Horizon, she's the one. I would go back to High School just to have her as one of my terachers again!

I was pretty annoying in her class, but she put up with me which was cool lol. I only took her class because I needed a fine art credit, but I almost decided to take Drama 3-4 next year because I really enjoyed her class. She is a great drama teacher.

She is never really clear on what she expects from her students on tests, but I have learned so many irreplacable lessons from her. She has truly shaped who I am today, and I discovered the course of my future through her teachings. I want to teach Drama, and I would be thrilled if I could do it half as wonderfully as she does!

Perhaps a bit on the easy side, and does tend to give certain students (COUGHCOUGH ANYONE ONE ON BOARD COUGHCOUGH) but still an excellent drama teacher.
