My name is John Percival. I am an Arizona native and live in Mesa. Since the age of 12 I have been involved on the production side of shows and now love being the Assistant Manager of the HPCA. When I am not running a show or teaching, I like to spend time with my three children (ages 10, 8, and 6). My interests include working at the Higley Center for the Performing Arts (HPCA), collecting/watching anything Sci-fi (Star Trek, Star Wars, Dr. Who to name a few), and camping.
I look forward to this school year and sharing my passion with your student. I hope to instill a love and respect for the tech side of theater and show the students what all goes on to make a production happen.
Educational Philosophy: I expect great things from those I teach. I believe that each student is capable of achieving far more than they typically believe is possible. I view each student as a unique individual and will do all within my ability to help them succeed. I am on their side.
