Students at Hoover are fortunate enough to have two year-long drama classes as well as a Stage Tech class offered to them! Drama students learn self-confidence and self-control along with valuable acting and critiquing skill. The year-long Drama 1 class introduces students to theatre in the first semester. Important skills focused on throughout the year include improvisation, skits, scenes, monologues, one-acts, creating a character, and pantomime. Successful completion of the Drama 1 course or a placement audition is followed by admission to the Advanced Drama class.
In Advanced Drama, students continue learning and improving their technique and skills in theatre. The Advanced Drama class works in conjunction with the Stage Tech class to produce two full productions per year for public performance.

Mrs. Elizabeth Jordan has been teaching at Hoover for the past 20 years. A graduate of San Jose State University with a degree in Social Sciences/Child Development, she went on to get her multiple subjects teaching credential, then her Single Subject supplement in English. After that she received her master’s degree in Instructional Technology which also allowed her to get another Single Subject supplement in Computer Concepts and Applications. Theatre has always been a passion and she spent several years acting, directing and performing at the now-defunct Opry House in Almaden. Additionally, she performs, when time permits in various community theatre shows, the latest playing the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz with Lyric Theatre.
Personally, she lives with her husband, Sean, and two of her three sons, Connor and Josh, and two adorable, but irritating small dogs, Riley and Bella. Hobbies include baking, reading, crocheting, and attending theatre productions.
She loves teaching at Hoover, thinks Hoover kids are the best, and is really looking forward to the upcoming year.
