Abra Chusid




  • A Teachable Moment

    I might seem an unlikely theatre teacher, as I could not say my name until I was eleven years old. After years of speech therapy, I was no longer “Abwa Thuthid,” but finally “Abra Chusid.” I could finally speak! Yet after a lifetime of repeating myself and continual teasing from my older brothers, I was uncertain that my voice was worth sharing. It was then that I attended my first theatre camp. There, my director created the space for me to be confident in sharing my voice. Just as she recognized the importance to share my voice, I value each student’s success, and help to them recognize their unique contributions in order to share their voices.
