Media, Art & Language Teacher
Inspiring students through the arts, digital media and technology.
Hello - I am a teacher and facilitator specialising in Art, Film Making, Drama, Graphic Design, Media Studies & English (EFL)
Using play, improvisation, theatre and a high level of fluidity with digital tools into my sessions, I provide students, of all ages, a fun and exciting approach to learning.
This dynamic teaching style can be adapted across different environments and levels and key stages.
I bring a high level of digital literacy to my projects. The first chapter of my career, I worked in development and production. This has given me a flexible, dynamic and effective set of tools which allow me to deliver and adapt workflows both for the benefit of my students and also to my peers and across departments.
These skills are not only invaluable in the classroom but have also been applied in the authoring and delivering of keynotes, PD's and Insets themed around the effective usage of using digital tools in the classroom.
This approach allows me 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 refining their digital workflows and toolsets.
