Hi there, thanks for dropping by!
My name is Margaret Caldwell, I am currently positioned as a Year 8 Level Coordinator and English/Drama teacher about to finish my fourth year of teaching, having previously worked as a radio and online content producer for numerous industry bodies, such as Arts Australia, ABC and Monocle (UK broadcaster).
Now, I have come into my own, proving to be the ultimate “triple threat” or EDU-MEDIATOR.I devised this portmanteau as it encapsulates my three core professional skills: educator, multimedia producer, advocate and facilitator.
My career dream is now pitched towards facilitating students to creating, producing and managing a media publication/broadcast of their own to have a voice.
With proven, (and significant) improvements in literacy skills as assessed by On Demand and PAT, my ultimate goal is to incite a sense of curiosity in a classroom. I also implement critical thinking skills through formative assessment tasks as learning how to use reflection as a tool for learning.
AS MEDIA PROFESSIONAL (OF PAST YEARS):
My previous career as a radio/online/podcast producer has seen me devise engaging curriculum maps that exploit these numerous skills, as well as lending background knowledge of media legislation with the attainment of a Master’s degree with this innovative multimodal and more importantly, enable and facilitate our students to gain relevant and necessary skills by ensuring a scope for developing digital literacy is always in place.
Relationship building is fundamental to effectively educating a student.
I have been devoted to the engagement of the students in a dual role: assessing both their wellbeing through behavioural patterns and with the tasks set to gain the skillset intended.
As a teacher, my expertise is two-fold in both the management of students’ I am looking to foster and promote a long-term professional relationship with a school that is looking as far ahead towards the future of learning as I am.
