I have been teaching as a graphics teacher for 3 years now. I have a bachelors degree from NC State School of Design in graphics as well as a masters in teaching technology education from NC State. I also worked as a freelance graphic designer with a variety of companies between my two degrees.
I run my class in a very creative, upper-level thought process way. There is a lot of self discovery. Though self-discovery is important, whenever the students research on their own I always try to bring them back and make sure everyone is on the same page. Creativity and thinking skills are what are job market needs and my effort is to promote and help students develop those skills.
I have an article published in the Technology Teacher, ITEA magazine. I am also currently a writer for a technology professional development grant that NC State and VA Tech are working on.
Early education in NY. College and grad school at NC State.
Creativity is really important - this is the thing we need to focus on in school. Thinking skills stem from the ability to be creative.
