HAGERSTOWN -- Named for a character in the original "Mission Impossible" TV show, Cinnamon Rowland said she didn't have to come up with a stage name -- her parents gave her one when she was born. As an elementary school teacher and longtime Potomac Playmakers performer, Rowland, 41, is on "stage" every day. "I think of teaching as almost performing. You have to be onstage to keep them entertained," Rowland said. Rowland has taught vocal music at Emma K. Doub School for Integrated Arts & Technology for 18 years, the first 10 years splitting her time between Emma K. Doub and Winter Street Elementary School.
