Masters of Teaching, qualified and experienced primary/secondary drama teacher, in eastern Victoria.

Methodology

Learning is an individual and a collaborative process. Drama is most effective done in person where everyone contributes and are equal and important. Reflection, feedback, assessment, and homework help develop the learning process. Learning happens everywhere therefore the integration of field trip's helps deepen the learning process. Learning must be scaffolded/differentiated to suit all learning styles such as visual, verbal, social, logical and physical.

Background

I have over six years of qualified teaching experience. I have worked overseas and in Australia teaching mostly drama and English language learning content to primary, secondary and adult learners. Always aiming to expand others and my own learning opportunities.

FACILITATING EXPERIENCE :

Before moving into full time pre-service I achieved skills and knowledge via practicum, casual relief teaching, and childcare.
From August 2015-Feb. 2020 Malaysia and China I have taught mostly drama, English and ESL learning content across primary, secondary, and adult levels.

Through out my pre service and service time I have worked both independently and collaboratively. During this time I have helped to create, teach and assess student-centered mostly drama, ESL and English learning content mainly across primary and secondary levels.

I have also been assigned extra responsibility three times as a home room teacher across grades 1, 5, and 6 for up to 27 students and 35 students at a time as a specialist teacher. Such responsibilities extended into extracurricular activities including performing arts, sporting, personal development, team building, in/excursions, administration and catering duties.

I have also gained transferable skills through administration, retail, cleaning, seasonal, factory, and performing arts experiences. I added to these skills by successfully obtaining (March 2020) first aid training, HLTAID004 Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting (includes CPR, anaphylaxis, asthma, first aid, and basic emergency life support.)
