BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The fun never ends in the drama class of Cat Thomas at North Brunswick High School.
“I was just in high school like 6 or 7 years ago,” she says, “so I relate to them more and I understand where they’re coming from.”
Teaching at North Brunswick is her first job and she says she loves it because her students are very talented and committed. She also says she is getting support from the school and the community.
Her students describer her as someone who is a teacher, but also a student. They say she learns from them as much as she teaches.
When asked if she is a teacher or an actor, Ms. T (as she is affectionately known) says ” teaching is not only my job, it is my passion and acting is more like my hobby.”
She adds that “it brings me more joy to see someone else become a character than to see myself become another character.”
