Katelyn Fike is very excited to join us for a fifth year as Director of the ALF Drama program. She was the drama instructor for the LCUSD elementary schools from 2013-2019, and has also taught classes for ALF Summer School. Katelyn has a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts from California State University Northridge and has performed in many stage productions over the years. As a drama teacher, her main philosophy is not only to teach lines and blocking to students, but to also instill creativity, confidence, and teamwork! In 2020, she obtained a Master’s degree in counseling and, when not teaching drama, she works as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist.
Tristan Waldron joined ALF Drama in 2018 and returns this year as Assistant Director.

Tristan also works as a professional actor, appearing in films, TV shows, and plays. Check out his website www.TristanWaldron.com for more information. He would like to thank everyone involved with Assistance League of Flintridge for creating and supporting such a great program.
