Hi! My name is Dana Bottomley. This will be my 13th year teaching and my third year at Cleveland Middle School. I teach theatre arts, general music, and chorus. I have previously taught fourth grade (all subjects) and sixth grade math, language arts, and social studies. I love helping children answer the question, "When am I going to use this in my life?" I also love helping children discover the magic of the arts - working as a team, problem solving, and thinking on their feet! In my free time I enjoy going to the theatre, singing, and reading!
