Lights, Camera, Action!!!
Welcome to the Theatre Department at Burnet High School! My name is Amanda Brandenburg and I am the Theatre director at Burnet High School. I teach Theatre Arts 1, Theatre Arts 2 - 4, Technical Theatre 1, Technical Theatre 2, and Theatre Production 1 and 2 (BETC). I have 13 years of teaching experience. My hometown is Brackettville, Texas and I graduated from Brackett High School. After high school, I obtained a Bachelor's degree from Texas Lutheran University in Theatre Arts and Speech Communication. Then, I attended Kansas State University and obtained a Master's degree in Theatre Arts, specializing in Directing, while I was also a teaching assistant for the university. Upon graduation, I started my high school teaching career, which ultimately brought me to the wonderful Burnet CISD.
My husband and I are excited that we will be welcoming our first child, Robyn, in October! We also have two dogs named Twinkie and Lizzy.
My goal this year is to give you the best lessons possible and to foster a love and respect for Theatre. I want my students to get better year after year so this year will be filled with educational opportunities that will guide the student's growth. I love Theatre and look forward to the fun we will have exploring and learning!
I wish everyone an excellent and happy school year!
