Art, Computing & Language teacher.
Sharing knowledge and inspiring.
I am an teacher and facilitator specialising in Language (English & Spanish), Art, Performance, Drama, Digital Media, Computing & Media Studies.
I specialise in dynamic and engaging teaching approaches. I bring play, improvisation, dance and drama into my sessions whilst maintaining a backbone of syllabus requirements.
This kinaesthetic approach, combined with high levels of engagement and playfulness has rendered strong results in my practice to date. I combine these approaches with a vast range of digital fluidity whilst always coming back to a thread of practical language and real-world applications.
Helping students to find their voice.
By softly bringing assertiveness training into my teaching practice, my students often find they have a voice in the world that more traditional models of teaching can often sacrifice. This is ideal for students who have a tendency to be passive in their engagements and ideal for schools that want to open the doors for their students to get out and make their mark on the world.
I also bring an extremely high level of digital fluidity to my projects. This is useful not only for the creation of material, but offers the possibility of dynamic flexibility (should a workflow fail) and allows us to shift and roll depending on the direction of the class and the project. These tools have also proved to be useful for helping other faculty members in addressing their general digital workflows and toolsets.
