I have been teaching at Penfield High School in Rochester NY, since 1999. I have taught many different classes, including Digital Video, Animation, Film Photography, Digital Photography, Media Arts, Video Game Design, Advertising, Desktop Publishing,Studio in Art, Jewelry, and even Sculpture. I am also a co-advisor and teacher supervisor of Penfield's Robotics Team, Rolling Thunder.
When I came to Penfield, the only digital curriculum we had was a one-semester course in Computer Graphics. Since then, I have authored and implimented new curriculum for the Digital Video, Digital Photography, Animation, Media Arts, Desktop Publishing, Video Game Design, and Advertising classes. Our department now teaches approximately 30% of its collective curriculum in the computer lab, training our students in modern media and methods of design.
