David Gillespie


Teacher, Drama

One score and four years ago, I began my rewarding career as a Theatre Arts/Expressive Arts instructor. It all began quite humbly at The Calgary Board of Education and then quickly lead to Head of Drama/Expressive Arts in private schools in Calgary and London, England. Over the course of my teaching career, I studied and taught for ten years at The Royal Shakespeare Company London; The National Theatre London; and Complicite Theatre Company London. Upon returning to Canada, after teaching and being exposed to prestigious actors/directors and their Dramatic/Educational Methods in the United Kingdom, I was honoured to be invited to become a member of the teaching staff at The Third Academy School; and for the past two years at The Third Academy, I have facilitated a number of Theatrical Productions, including King Arthur and The Knights of the Round Table and Disney’s Aladdin, with the talented students and staff of this very effective and ground breaking educational institution.
