Bill Kirkley

BIll Kirkley is thrilled to be associated with Springbok Academy. He ran summer children's theatre programs for the city of Denton and for six years at Denton Community Theatre.   He and Vicki, his wife of twenty-four years, have been pleased with the education and care both their children received when they attended Springbok, and he wants to foster that level of achievement in others.

 

Bill has an extensive background in the theatrical arts and applies the same approach to class room management as to a production: small steps to achieve the greater goal. Bill believes that each child learns at their own pace and that his job is to discover what that pace is and how best to help the child discover the rewards. Bill studied English and creative writing as well as non-profit management at UNT and is a published author, playwright and amateur cartoonist as well as theatre director. He enjoys being animated and creative with the students. There is always laughter in his classroom.
