I am a computer graphics teacher and creative professional with over 17 years experience in the field. I hold an MFA degree in Photography and Digital Imaging, I also hold a valid Florida teaching certificate in Art K-12. I have been a teacher at New World School of the Arts, Miami International University of Art and Design, Miami Dade College, Design and Architecture Senior High School and Miami Arts Charter, all of which are highly regarded South Florida art and design schools. I've taught varied courses such as animation, photography, web design, video art and editing, motion graphics, DVD portfolio creation, graphic design, and many others.
My knowledge of Adobe and Apple software is extensive from the basics to the advanced, from Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and After Effects to the Apple products, iPhoto, iMovie, iWeb, DVD studio pro, and Final Cut Pro. I teach using project based goals so that students can create something tangible as opposed to just learning the interface and features of a particular software package.
I teach to individual strengths by assigning projects that are specific to the student's life experiences. This approach allows the student to create a project that reflects their interests and background. I find that this approach results in better quality projects that incorporates the life experiences of each student, which helps to ensure that the student stays interested and engaged through the completion of the project. I have numerous examples of student work to show in support of my approach which I will be happy to share with any prospective student.
