Valerie Planche, MFA

I believe teaching is an activity that must be nurtured and pursued with conscientiousness. The pedagogy of teaching evolves rapidly, as do the specificities of teaching in one’s discipline.

Valerie has an extensive teaching history, having taught classes at the University of Calgary, University of Alberta, Ambrose University and Mount Royal University. In addition, Valerie offers private coaching and facilitation sessions to professional actors, students, and members of the community, with a focus on acting, text, voice, and movement. 

My teaching philosophy is grounded in three basic principles: sharing knowledge, supporting growth, and building scholarship.

Valerie was the recipient of the Graduate Student Teaching Award, Faculty of Arts from the University of Alberta in 2014.
