Ms. Caitlyn Spires

Ms. Caitlyn Spires comes from Merrillville, IN, where she performed in community theatre since she was 10 years old. Ms. Spires was an active Thespian at Merrillville High School and served as a State Thespian Officer for the Indiana Thespian Society. Her love for theatre led her to pursue her Bachelor of Science from the University of Indianapolis in the area of Theatre Teaching. Ms. Spires later received her Masters in Education through an online program at the University of Georgia.

Along with teaching theatre, Ms. Spires continues to volunteer with Indiana Thespians as a member of the Adult Executive Board by being the co-sponsor of the current State Thespian Officers (STOs). Ms. Spires directs the fall musical, the Thespian contest show, and the spring play.
