Ms. Gentsch

Welcome to Drama! The 2023-2024 school year is my 9th year teaching and my 7th year at Shaw VPA. Previously, I have taught Theatre at Clyde C. Miller Career Academy High School and AESM @ Louverture Middle School. I am excited to be back at Shaw this year and to continue sharing my experiences with our students. I have been working in theatre for countless, I hold a Bachelors Degree in Theatre from Lindenwood University, and have worked on four national tours.

When I am not here at Shaw, I also teach Theatre and Visual Art for COCA in University City.

Outside of the classroom, I am a dog mom and a Dr. Pepper enthusiast with a shopping addiction out of this world. But, mainly, I enjoy spending time with my family.

Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions about what we are working on in class, school-wide shows, or if you are interested in information about camps, workshops, and master classes outside of Shaw.
