Literacy

Teaching EFL has given m an intimate knowledge of the English grammar and writing skills. This is highly transferable to the field of literacy.

this site outlines the importance of literacy to teaching creative arts http://www.curriculumsupport.education.nsw.gov.au/primary/creativearts/crosscurriculum/literacy/index.htm

IT and Teaching

ICT can be used to enhance learning in a number of ways. In the final year if my MA program the applications of information Technology became a special area of interest. In particular the use of m-learning devices within the classroom.

English as a Foreign Language

My teaching career began with a CELTA qualification. I have over 5 years experience as an EFL teacher in a range of settings including several multinational businesses and Curtin University. EFL remains my strongest area of teaching expertise though I did not take it as a major.

Special Needs Education

Prior to becoming qualified as a Special Ed. teacher, I was employed as a Disability Support Worker for approximately 5 years. in this time I specialised in recreational programs with a focus on disability arts.  I have worked with people with a range of mental, physical, intellectual and learning disabilities. Through this employment I developed an interest in maximising independence for students with disabilities and providing them with opportunities for creative expression.

Special Needs and Art Therapy

It is stressed in the wider educational context expertise of the field of art therapy is not necessarily about performing psychotherapy but rather building self esteem and enhancing abilities.
