Out and About in BTSALP Schools: Leslie Hamilton

Leslie works at two Ogden elementary schools and is a second year BTSALP drama specialist. On Thursday, October 29, Leslie was working with a 4th grade class doing a reader’s theater. She pre-assigned the students their characters and read through the play. She then had small props (capes, wigs, hats, masks) for the students to use as they performed the play as a class. The students had a great time acting out their roles!
