Music and Drama Teacher

My Bio

Hello, my name is Jorie McQuaid and this will be my 2nd year teaching at San Tan. I am thrilled to be teaching show choir, drama and dance at Power and general music at Recker this year!

I previously attended Scottsdale Community College as a Theatre major and I am currently attending Southern New Hampshire University to earn my Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and English.

I have experience as an actor, drama teacher, director, choreographer, stage manager and lighting and sound designer. In addition to my classes, I also offer a fall play and a spring musical open to all students at San Tan. I am thrilled to continue teaching because I believe that students involved in Theatre Arts develop skills that enable them for success in the real world, such as teamwork, leadership, time management, public-speaking, integrity and discipline.

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband Grant and my two chihuahua's Peanut and Crash! I also am probably planning my next Disney trip or watching a musical.
