Back to school!
Nathan has enrolled at Ball State University (chirp! chirp!) where he is pursing a Master of Arts in Secondary Education with a license to teach theatre arts at the middle/high school level. But don't worry! He will tread the boards again once theatres reopen. He has also started developing his teaching portfolio which can be viewed on the added tab above.
