Created and implemented media programs to provide a forum for student ideas and a positive student voice through broadcast journalism.

Started the Media Program at Southgate Secondary School and at Courtenay Junior School. During my tenure at Courtenay Junior School, the media program did much to enhance the culture of the school:

Morning television broadcasts with journalistic stories, video, music, and the announcements for the day,

Live shoots (editing on the fly) of sporting events, band and drama productions. Student directors and camera operators functioned much like in a live television broadcast,

Organization and running of school dances to raise money for student activities and to provide students with the opportunity for intense, “real-world” production experiences,

The annual music video contest, in which students created music videos to chosen themes or songs,

The Grade Nine Goodbye and Roast: one of the largest events run by media, in which MCs interacted with a video production for the departing grade nine students.
