Who is this Aleshea Harris and why should I hire her as a Teaching Artist?
(Because she knows what she’s doing!)

Aleshea Harris holds a B.A. in theatre from the University of Southern Mississippi and has worked professionally as an actress, spoken word poet and singer in various venues in the U.S. and beyond.  Tampa Bay highlights include performances at the Studio @ 620 (where she is an artist in residence), American Stage Theater and Ruth Eckerd Hall. 

Ms. Harris had the pleasure of performing for thousands of young people while touring the country with the Eckerd Theater Company.  She also taught themed dramatics and has worked as a teaching artist for the Marcia P. Hoffman Performing Arts Institute at Ruth Eckerd Hall, The Royal Theater Boys and Girls Club and with Youth Arts Corp at Wildwood Recreation Center, where she still currently instructs students in Theatre and Spoken Word. 

She completed the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ workshop entitled, “Artists as Educators: Laying a Foundation: Defining Arts Integration” and is thrilled to be working independently as a teaching artist once again.
