My wife, Trisha LaLumondier, is the Theatre teacher 9-12 for Beech High School. She makes such an impact on her kids lives. She often sees freshman, shy and apprehensive to get on stage and by the time they reach their junior/senior years they are excited to perform. The shyness is gone. Some even go onto college to study the performing arts or technical arts. The impact she has on their lives is extraordinary. These young kids, at times, are perhaps a little eccentric. Her theatre gives these kids a place where they feel accepted. One of her great quotes is "Beech Theatre, where strangers become friends"
