Ms. Landon on Theater, VAPA Plans

Janet Landon is the head of the Theater Department at WISH Academy. She has worked at WISH for four years, and in education for 30. She started as a substitute teacher and has even served in administrative positions. She has hopes to strengthen WISH’s up-and-coming theater program and recently received a $53,000 grant from the Ahmanson Foundation, an organization focused on the arts and youth engagement. The Aviary’s Hannah Benveniste sat down with her to ask her about her past experiences, her hopes for the theater program, and the student productions she is most proud of.

What is The Aviary?

Welcome to The Aviary, WISH Academy’s by-students, for-students newspaper. We founded this newspaper in order to strengthen the WISH community by providing transparency, and elevating students' voices. Throughout the year, we aim to provide students with informative, non-biased coverage of the school and the wider community, from events and activities to school-wide debates and policy issues.
