Mrs. Cosby has been involved in music and theater for as long as she can remember. She has performed in many different states, and remains a regular performer at the Great Plains Equity Theatre in Abilene, Kansas. While living in Colorado Springs and New York City, she privately studied music, acting and dance and got the unique chance to learn from the world’s best teachers. She has performed in more than 50 shows, two films and many commercials.
Mrs. Cosby taught music and theatre to children from Kindergarten through 12th grade for more than 15 years. She was the Education Director for the Great Plains Theatre Festival for three years and Theatre Director at Doherty High School in Colorado Springs. For the last fifteen years she has been the Director and owner of a music studio that teaches music to children 5 and under called “Music Together.”
Mrs. Cosby and her husband, Jeremy, have been married for 20 years. The couple has three sons, all of whom attend CSW. In addition to the family of five, the Cosby’s also care for and love seven pets — one Great Dane, one Labrador, two cats, two fish tanks and a baby turtle. “I love pets and could charge admission to the “Zoo of Animals” in my house,” she said.
In the classroom, Mrs. Cosby likes to instill the idea into students’ hearts that our God is the God of creation and that as Christ-followers we should be leading the way in the creative arts. She believes that because the Spirit of the Creator dwells in us, we have the capacity to be the most creative people in the world. She wants to encourage students to be light in a dark world and to use their God given talents for his Kingdom, encouraging others to draw closer to him.
“I love building relationships with students and sharing what God has done in my life through the arts. I want to share my passion for music, theatre and dance and teach them to have confidence in front of others so they can do what God has called them to do,” she said.
