• For our Shakespeare Unit: NGHS 10th Graders will participate in a three-day workshop during their English classes where they will complete their required Shakespeare learning standards through a residency with Triad Stage.

     This residency demystifies the Bard’s language through theatre games, active text analysis strategies, and rigorous text and character analysis. Students will bring Shakespeare’s text to life with performance techniques adapted from strategies used in professional rehearsal spaces.

  • Hello everyone,

    I am Katherine Rastrick and I am originally from England. I moved to America in 1986 and lived in Tampa, Florida for 14 years where I finished high school and obtained two degrees in English Literature and English Education with a minor (almost another major) in Art from the University of South Florida.

    I have been teaching for 21 years. I began my teaching career in Tampa, Florida, but came to North Carolina in 2000. I taught in Charlotte from 2000-2005 at Northwest School of the Arts, then went to Rowan County for a short stint, then West Davidson High School in Davidson County for 6 years. I returned to Charlotte to Olympic High School in 2010 and taught there until the end of the 2017-18 school year when I moved to Greensboro. I began this school year teaching in Virginia, but I wanted to teach closer to home.

    I have taught all grade levels from 7th through 12th and all levels of students from Standard, Honors, to AP. I have also taught Costuming, Film and Literature – with a focus on Holocaust and Genocide, and Yearbook throughout my career. I bring a creative flare to the classroom due to my arts background.

    In my spare time, I love to travel, read, belly dance and work out. I also spend a lot of time with my dog, Fluffy.

    If you ever have any questions, please email me at: rastrik@gcsnc.com or call the school at (336) 643-8449.

    Thank you and I look forward to a successful year.
