Bachelor of Arts in Drama
My name is Marika Karastamatis and this is my 5th year teaching Theatre at Bowie Middle School. Prior to teaching in public school, I worked at various local theatres where I taught weekly classes, directed camps and helped with musical direction. I have lived in Sugar Land since I was six years old and I am a product of Fort Bend ISD. I attended Walker Station Elementary school, Sartartia Middle School and Austin High School. Being a part of theatre and choir gave me a place where I belonged and a second family. It became my goal to do the same for my students. I strive to create a place where they feel they belong and are free to express themselves. Ever since I was a little girl pretending to be a teacher in my imaginary classroom, I knew this was what I wanted to do with my life. I graduated from The University of St. Thomas with a B.A. in Drama and a minor in Communications. In my spare time I enjoy acting and singing locally as well as spending time with my family, friends and 2 adorable dogs.
