Mr. Dean Whitus

This is my 25th year learning from my students and sharing what I've learned, as well. Happily, this is my 24th year at MacArthur! I've been passionate about the art since 3rd grade where I began studying and performing at The Dallas Theatre Center. I attended Booker T. Washington High School for Visual and Performing Arts in downtown Dallas under the direction of Dr. Paul Baker. After attending junior college in Tyler Texas and completing my degree at Texas State University, I moved to New York City to further my studies completing an intensive two years Meisner Training program. 

I had the great pleasure of advancing to State UIL One-Act-Play my first year of teaching at Memorial High School in McAllen, Texas; the Mac student's and I have been to State four times, last in 2016.

I am also a proud father of two incredible children, the oldest graduated in May from Bard College in upstate New York, and the younger is a sophmore here at MacArthur.
