I have 26 years of high classroom teaching experience in Media Studies, English and Media Production and Analysis. I have predominantly taught in Western Australian schools, however I have also taught English in Japan and English and Media Studies in London.
I use a teacher directed style when introducing new content and then combine a collaborative, inquiry based style to consolidate learning.
