Job promotion... of sorts..

Wed Dec 17, 2014, 5:45 AM
Emma, the Digital Media teacher here at Lesmurdie Senior High School has gained a new job at a different school and so I've been tabbed as the guy to take over! Normally I'm a Social Sciences/Geography teacher at this school and have been doing that for the past 6 years...!

But my second teaching area from 25 years ago when I first graduated University is actually Media Studies so officially I'm able to teach it. Digital Media involves teaching Photoshop and assorted other Adobe software so that's fine. It covers logo design, advertising, poster design, making short film segments, video editing, vines, graphic design, media parody, copycat media plus other assorted theory stuff. Apart from the video editing, which I've never done using a computer app (back in my day we had to film edit cuing VHS tapes in tandem machines) I'm fine with all of that stuff because of my freelance art background, and I can vaguely remember the theory stuff from 25 years ago. I'm sure it'll all come back to me after a bit of reading of the textbook...

Why is it a promotion - of sorts? Well its because I'm now *the* guy to be the "Teacher in Charge" (TiC) for Digital Media according to Boby the Head of the Art Department... so, basically I'm in charge of myself. :) No extra pay, just extra responsibility. He may be selling the position up a bit to make me feel good, but if he is then its worked... :)

It only involves 2 classes next  year of a year 9 (14 years old) and a year 10 class (15 years old) of kids, but Boby intends for the section to grow over the next few years if all goes to plan and he'll introduce a year 8 course as well as offer the subject as a year 11 course for 2016. All with me teaching it! So, if enough kids choose the subject, I would eventually drop most of the social sciences stuff and pick up this Digital Media subject instead...! Since they'll still need a Geography teacher to team with the other guy we have here doing that subject I'd *probably* end up teaching mostly DM and one class of Geography after a few years...  which frankly would be a pretty nice teaching load overall! :) As I said, this depends entirely of everything going to plan and that enough kids choose the subject to make it viable with the numbers. If not, I go back to being a social sciences/geog teacher as that's my 'substantive permanent' position in the school (that's similar to 'tenure')

I'm a high school teacher of Social Studies + Geography/History during the day and Caped Colouring Crusader by night, well... maybe not with an actual cape... but colouring stuff on the side as a hobby and the odd one-off paid gig here and there. I've worked for Marvel as an art refurbisher for their "Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe vol. 7 - 14 (and have had official credit for various Avengers Handbooks as well when they reused the images..) More recently I have had a pretty regular gig doing covers for Zenescope since December 2012. :)
