Specialist Subject Leader Media
After completing my Masters in Creative and Performing Arts, I was lucky enough to start teaching Media Studies and English at ASHS in 2010. As Specialist Subject Leader of Media Studies I have led the development of a programme that explores our lives as both consumers and producers of a constantly evolving landscape of media in the 21st century. This includes everything from social media, streaming media platforms, drama and documentary, news media and video production. Our students live in a world where we are exposed to more media than ever before and I believe it is crucial that we teach them how to safely navigate their way through the murky waters of fake news and dangerous misinformation. I also have a miniature Schnauzer named Gus who is the very goodest boy.
