Prior to becoming an English teacher, Ted Shaffner enjoyed a decade-long career in professional and educational theatre. Both as a director and actor, Mr. Shaffner employed lessons of improvisation and adaptability to infuse energy into scenes and to move the creative process forward. Following successful engagements at the Lincoln Center in New York City, Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C., and Playmaker’s Repertory Company in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Mr. Shaffner embraced his growing passion for teaching and was lured from the stage to the classroom. Over the past eleven years, he has drawn from his experiences in theatre to craft English curriculum that supports adaptability and risk taking in order that students stretch themselves to become better writers, more engaged listeners, and active participants of discovery. At The Hun School of Princeton, Mr. Shaffner has established a reputation for his enthusiasm for English, but also more broadly for education.
