My name is Al Waller. I’m an educator as well as an independent filmmaker and animator. I’ve 6 years’ experience as a certified elementary school art teacher in Georgia and Florida – teaching every grade from K-5th. I’m currently in my 7th year of teaching college, primarily in Animation and Media Arts. I’m part of the faculty at LaGrange College where I teach courses in three departments: Art and Design; Digital Creative Media and Film; and the Education department. Within the Education program I instruct student teachers in how to incorporate animation and other media techniques into their curriculum and classroom environment.
My teaching style is built around using powerful, entertainment based media techniques as effective tools in education. I work very hard to create professional level videos and interactive media that help teachers draw students into educational content.
