My favourite image at the moment!
I have been a teacher at Diocesan School for Girls for a number of years. I started off as a typing teacher and it was a huge learning curve when the school introduced computers and I became teacher in charge of Information Management (now IT) instead of Typing. A lot has changed since electronic typewriters. The students now bring their own laptops to school. Last year I introduced 3D Modelling and Animation to a very small group of year 12 and 13 students using Blender. I became interested in this area when I was fortunate enough to spend a few months with Flux Animation after being awarded a NZ Science Mathematics and Technology Teacher Fellowship for 2007. I teach three levels:
- Year 10 Digital Technologies (2D animation and web design)
- Year 11 Digital Technologies (2D animation/gaming and web design)
- Year 13 3D Animation (3D modelling and animation)
I enjoy the following:
- Going to the movies
- Playing computer games
