English and Drama Teacher
1 x year 12 English
I have taught a connections unit and am in the process of teaching close viewing for film and visual image essay skills to a class of year 12 students.
2 x year 11 English
I teach English to 2 very different senior classes. One is academically focused and these students are working towards achieving merit and excellence grades. The other comprises more challenging students and I am encouraging these students to learn social skills and adopt appropriate academic behaviour.
1 x year 10 English
I teach a junior class in English literacy skills. This comprises film, speeches, novel study and visual image as well as a variety of literacy techniques. Students work towards developing a portfolio of writing which will help inform their teachers next year of their level of literacy.
1 x year 10 Drama
My drama students enjoy attending class as the lessons offer an opportunity for learning and entertainment. I teach the more outgoing students to control their impulses and improve their self expression skills whilst encouraging the shy ones to increase their confidence.
Last year I produced and directed a junior play which was performed for the local intermediate school. I also support the Inline Hockey sports team by transporting and coaching students every Thursday evening for two terms.
