2A Hozier Street
I am contacting you to explore whether an opportunity might exist to continue my teaching practice at New College Lanarkshire. I am currently finishing my probationary year at Biggar High School where I have been teaching Art and Design. I have a very flexible working schedule and would be available for daytime, evening and weekend teaching.
I am a fully committed and passionate teacher who strives to engender this passion in those that I teach. I have high expectations of every learner, adopt a variety of teaching methods and use differentiated resources to challenge and inspire all learners whilst aiming to deliver the experiences and outcomes laid out in Curriculum for Excellence. I am experienced at developing and delivering the curriculum for both National and Higher qualifications. Assessing, recording and reporting are an integral part of my practice and I adopt a variety of AiFL strategies to confirm pupils are achieving the desired learning outcomes and are prepared for examination.
Having graduated in Textile Design from Heriot-Watt University, I understand all aspects of the creative process. My primary skills are screen printing, digital printing, pattern cutting and dye mixing, however I am also a confident drawer/mark maker, photographer and graphic designer. I understand the role technology can have in the creative process, and as a result, I am confident using many of the applications on the Adobe Creative Cloud.
I would be a strong addition to any team as I am an organised professional with good communication, team work skills and self-management skills. Teaching is my passion and I want to continue having a positive impact on the young people in my care.
I am excited at the possibility of being involved in further education and would appreciate the opportunity to share the skills I have by contributing to the learning environment at New College Lanarkshire.
Thank you for your consideration.
