Welcome to Theatre Arts and Journalism at North West Guilford Middle School! My name is Mr. Luck, I am a graduate of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bachelors' degree in Theatre, Minor in Musical Theatre. This is my 2nd year in Guilford County Schools.
While attending UNCG I was employed with radio stations such as Rock 92.3 WKRR/ 107.5 WKZL and earlier interned at The Dispatch of Lexington, NC. Outside of the Media/Broadcasting business, I have been working in Regional Theatre since 2015 at Triad Stage, The Lost Colony, Paper Lantern Theatre Company, and GTCC Performing Arts Center as an Actor, Stage Manager, Technician, Usher, and freelance Theatre practitioner. As a result, I hold certifications with the Society of American Fight Directors and an Actors Equity Membership candidate.
I am a former 3 sport athlete in football, baseball, and basketball/Wrestling and also was a member of Band, Chorus, and of course THEATER. I graduated from Ledford Senior High School in 2015 and attended Western Carolina University, UNCG, and GTCC from 2015-2018. Since graduating I have been employed through GCS beginning in 2019 and a graduate of the Guilford County Schools Alternative Certification Track.
Outside of being an Educator I fuel my athletic edge with CrossFit and during the summertime, I am a devoted YMCA Camp Counselor. I enjoy traveling with my partner Tatum of 5 years and we reside here in the Piedmont Triad of NC. I am looking forward to teaching you this school year and hopefully the years to come!
Our focus in Theatre Arts classes will be learning how to communicate ideas and feelings, Social-Emotional Learning, and performing in imaginary circumstances!
Our focus in Journalism will be learning what makes a story and where we find resourceful information to support our evidence!
- This year, I am teaching:
- 6th Grade Theatre Arts
- 7th Grade Theatre Arts
- 8th Grade Theatre Arts
I am looking forward to being in the classroom once we are allowed to be together once again. if you have any questions please call or text my google voice number at 336-298-1840. Please use this, parents, if you have ANY questions for me in regards to the expectations of our online learning.
