In this edition of 'Meet the Teacher' we speak with Mr. Jeremy Guzman from the Secondary School.

Name: Jeremy Guzman - Secondary School Teacher - jeremy.guzman@marymede.vic.edu.au

What is your role at the College?

I currently teach Media from Years 9-12 and VET Media. I also coordinate the College Yearbook and run the Marymede Film School Co-Curricular Program with Ms Hopkins.

Tell us about an interesting project or topic that you are currently running with one of your classes?

The Year 11 Media students are creating a television news program called ‘Marymede Now’. As part of their assessment, each student is required to fulfil the responsibilities of a specialist role, such as a reporter or camera operator, and collaborate with their peers in small teams to produce a news story.

For this project, I also staged a breaking news event, which the class knew nothing about. When an anti-litter protest involving Ms Wake, Ms Bedford and the 7.1 Drama class broke out in Wurrun Common, ‘Marymede Now’ were first to arrive at the scene with exclusive coverage as the news unfolded!

What is the most rewarding aspect of being a Teacher?

The most rewarding aspect of being a Teacher is seeing students overcome a challenge and achieve their goals, be it academic or personal. Even the smallest achievement, like putting your hand up and having a go at answering a question, can take a lot of courage for some people and can cultivate the biggest feeling of success.

Fast Five:

Favourite Food: I have recently enjoyed trying Spanish and Mexican cuisine.

Favourite Movie/TV Show: This is very difficult for a Media teacher to answer! At the moment, my favourite film is Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), which won Best Picture at this year’s Oscars, and my favourite TV show is Glitch – a gripping new Australian drama on the ABC.

Hidden Talent or Something We May Not Know About You: I play the drums, piano and know a few chords on the guitar.

Favourite Sporting Team/Athlete: The Australian Cricket Team.

If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:
Tina Fey - To make me laugh;

Dave Grohl - To provide me with creative inspiration;

Quentin Tarantino - To teach me how to be a better filmmaker.

In this edition of 'Meet the Teacher' we speak with Ms. Therese Walsh from the Primary School.

Name: Therese (Tess) Walsh - Primary School Teacher - Year 2.2 - therese.walsh@marymede.vic.edu.au

What is your role at the College?

I am a member of the Primary School Teaching team, currently teaching Year 2.2.

Tell us about an interesting project or topic that you are currently running with one of your classes?

The Year 2 team and I have recently been working with students on a new program this year called 'The Levelled Literacy Intervention Program'. This program focuses on the individual needs of each of our students in order to help them reach their full potential. Students learn reading and writing skills in small groups with a direct focus on individual needs.

The Levelled Literacy Intervention lessons are designed to provide direct, yet fun, supplemental instruction for those who require it and we are already seeing some excellent results.

What is the most rewarding aspect of being a Teacher?

For me, the most rewarding aspect of being a teacher is being able to work closely with my students and inspire them to achieve their goals both academically and spiritually.

Fast Five:

Favourite Food: Chocolate

Favourite Movie/TV Show: Finding Neverland

Hidden Talent or Something We May Not Know About You: I used to be a Swimming Coach and Zumba Instructor!

Favourite Sporting Team/Athlete: Ian Thorpe

If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:
 

Johnny Depp - Because he is a successful actor whom I would like to speak to about life in the eye of the media.

Oprah Winfrey - She has used her success to help others and I would love to find out what projects she is currently working on now.
