Hampshire College (Video Production)
I have six years experience teaching in community settings in California, Western Massachusetts, and Switzerland. While earning my BA in Amherst, Massachusetts I worked as a Teaching Assistant for three courses in the Film and Video department. Concurrently, I was the Program Assistant and Teaching Artist for See-Hear-Feel-Film, a national media literacy program for third graders. My colleagues and I initiated See-Hear-Feel-Film at the Amherst Cinema Art Center, built upon the curriculum, and made it more accessible to students learning English as a second language.
I have continued this commitment to media education to the present day. I teach Film and Video production classes to youth at the Echo Park Film Center. Most recently, I designed and taught a filmmaking fundamentals course for teenage girls. By the end of the course, each student completed a 5 minute film and some students submitted their work to national film festivals. I also work with the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock, designing and teaching art classes for children in grades K-3. In addition, over the past seven years I have developed my artistic practice of nonfiction filmmaking, and my films have screened nationally and internationally at venues including the Cinema Sao Jorge and the Swiss Film Archive.
I have an MFA in Film and Video Production as well as six years experience teaching film and video to children and adults. I am a media professional and have screened in festivals nationally and internationally.
I am a sincere and enthusiastic teacher, I meet my students eye to eye, and I am respectful of their personal challenges and goals. I also sincerely believe in the power of a fun and safe environment for productive learning and creativity.
