What Lights Her Up About Teaching?

The moment that the fear her student feels, turns into trust.

Proudest Career Moment

Going to the Emmys and watching her student win! That student was Julia Garner of Ozark fame whom Pamela has taught and coached since the young actor was only 14 years old. Best part of the night? Julia gave Pamela a shoutout from the stage!

"Pam has been my private acting coach since I started acting. I wouldn’t dream of doing an audition or film without first coaching with Pam."
— Julia Garner (Waco, Ozark, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For).
“I was hoping to learn the beginning steps of acting. I definitely feel like I did. My teacher Pam was so kind. She never made us feel like we were asking dumb questions. She really took her time to explain everything and even tell stories to give examples. I can’t wait to take more classes at T. Schreiber.”
"Pam is a gifted leader. I've had a tremendous experience in her class. The environment she creates is incredibly nurturing, warm, and inviting."
