GRAMMAR: PHRASAL VERBS

This class is all about intonation. The most important part of English pronunciation is intonation. Intonation is the contrast between higher-sounding parts of speech and lower-sounding parts of speech. Often, when people don’t understand what you say, it has to do with intonation. Get your English intonation under control, and greatly diminish the frequency with which you experience this problem. And, with enough practice, you might even be able to eliminate this problem. During this course, you’ll also learn how to pronounce sounds (phonemes) that are di–cult for you.

NONºPROFIT ORG U . S P O S TA G E PA I D B R O C K TO N , M A P E R M I T N O. 4 0 2

WHAT DREW YOU TO APPLY FOR THIS POSITION? I have always wanted to expand my career in the arts and my time at CCAE as a teacher has grown my love for the program. When the position became available I jumped at the opportunity to become a guiding hand for a program that I care so much about. YOU TAUGHT FOR SEVEN YEARS AT CCAE, HOW DOES YOUR EXPERIENCE AS AN INSTRUCTOR ENHANCE YOUR PERFORMANCE AS A PROGRAM DIRECTOR? It gives me a clear understanding of what the needs of the teachers are as a whole as well as a deeper understanding of how to help them grow the program. A dual point of view so to speak. WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT WORKING AT CCAE?

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE IDEAS THAT YOU WISH TO MAKE HAPPEN FOR THE VISUAL ARTS AND CRAFTS DEPARTMENT? There are a few, but I would say my top two are to expand the program to new artistic mediums and create dynamic crossover classes with other departments that create a deeper appreciation of arts and crafts in daily life. AS AN ARTIST WHAT INSPIRES YOU AND WHY? As a person I have an incredibly hyper imagination. The term daydreaming was not just a way to pass boredom when I was growing up. To this day dreams and the imagery created in them has always intrigued me. That and people, I find people incredibly interesting and I’d say a large part of my work incorporates people, figures or anatomy in a kaleidoscope of surreal happenings.

The opportunity to really have an impact on the growth and expansion of our students’ artistic journeys. In a way, to help foster greater exploration for individuals and see their creative interests flourish.
