Bonjour! My name is Pren Woods and I greet you in a foreign language to express my love for languages and world travel. I am a middle school social studies teacher. My favorite courses to teach are South Carolina history and world history. Because of my performing arts background, I use a lot of drama, dance, and singing to teach history. There is never a dull moment. Some of my hobbies include writing poetry and music, karaokeing, traveling, and hanging out in Barnes and Noble with my wife. Cheerio!

Hi! My name is Aalayah. I attend a middle school in Charleston county where I play the trumpet in the band. Previously, I attended Rollings Middle school of the Arts for 2 years. While at Rollings I played a leading role in the play "A Christmas Carol," taking on the character of Mrs. Stone, (the mother of Ebenezer Scrooge). I am also a writer. Two of the many plays I have written are "Peepers The Penguin" and "Life is a Highway," both were chosen to be performed on stage.
I am in many extracurricular activities such as softball, praise dance, and the church choir. I have gotten all A's and B's and my academic achievement has allowed me to take the SAT for the Duke Tip Program. It has been a privilege to be one of the few chosen on ETV's Road Trip: Through SC Civil Rights History. I am very honored to be a part of a show that studies the history of our past, and the people that made it happen. This will definitely be a big help towards my future acting career.
Student - Kathleen
Hi! My name is Kathleen. I'm a seventh grader at Rollings Middle School of the Arts. My favorite classes are theatre arts and Algebra I. I have loved acting since I was three years old, performing skits with my brother for any one who would listen. When I was in third grade, I auditioned for “The Phantom Tollbooth” at the Flowertown Players in Summerville. When I finished with that one, I could not wait to try out for the next. Since then, I have been in one children’s show each year there. Some of the most recent roles I had are “Alice” in “Alice in Wonderland” and “Cobweb” in “The Snow Queen.” Currently, I'm working on my role as “Wendy” in “Peter Pan.” I live with my mom, Elizabeth; dad, Jerry; brother, Patrick; and dog, Fritz. My hobbies include collecting feathers, reading, acting, and babysitting.
