Will Pharis

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to spend my days talking about my favorite subjects:  theater, literature, and writing. I am a graduate of New York University, with a B.A. in English and American Literature; and I received theater training through the three-year Professional Acting Program of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where I spent my last year as a member of the resident professional company. Prior to becoming a teacher at age 40, I worked in publishing, theater, and advertising in New York City. I am now using that background in my daily classes. In addition to my teaching assignments and outside creative writing, I edit Chappelow's school journal, The Cheetah Print, and direct our full-scale spring musical.


It's a pleasure to be a part of the Chappelow family.
