Ms. O to Greece in 2015!

DID MS. O EVER TEACH YOU or LEND YOU A HAND?  Now she needs your help!  

     In July & July 2015 I am going to Athens, Greece for a 3-week professional development workshop at The Athens Centre,
     For the past 14 years I have been teaching the Ancient Greeks in my theatre and acting classes, and I've decided it's time to get a hands-on look and ensconce myself in the place where western theatre began. This workshop offerings are similar to my 2011 fellowship to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London, and next year's season at Riordan will be GREEK (soon to be announced!).  

     I am looking for former students, friends, family, colleagues to offer $5 - $10 donations, and thank Jannine Nelson for the Go Fund Me idea and push!

     Fund for Teachers offers professional development GRANT for this purpose and I am applying when the application comes out in October, to cover the other portion of this experience.

Workshop & Housing        $2,400
Flight (business class)     +$3,000
Per Diem                        $2,100
Additional Housing           $  450

TOTAL                           $7,950
Less Raised so far!         -   3,412
Less Grant                    -   4,468
GO FUND ME needed        $1,709

Any other expenses will be paid out-of-pocket. I already have a bank account set up specifically for this trip, and will send all my supporters emails and postcards from Athens. THANKS!
