Tamara Altman

I have been teaching Theatre at Northwestern High School for 19 years. I am also director of the International Thespian Society Troupe on campus. I received my BA in Theatre Performance from Winthrop University and have studied in conservatories at The South Carolina's Governors School and the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I received my MA in Directing Theatre Arts from Roosevelt University in Chicago. I am married to Rusty Altman and have three children. Brennan, Ashton and Payton are all proud Northwestern Alumni. Although I am originally a RHHS alumni and Bearcat Thespian, I wear purple and gold with pride.
