With the new Morgan, many changes were made. Including changes to the tardy policy, the banning of food in the classrooms, and new teachers. This year the Technology Department welcomed Integrated Media Arts Teacher, Jessica Mularski.
Ms.Mularski used to work at Branford High School as Library Media Specialist for 3 years and for 1 year was the Instructional Technology Coach. She has been teaching for 10 years.
Here at Morgan, she teaches Digital Imaging, Video Production, Intro to Communications and Freshman Course.
Here are her opinions and plans for Morgan:
How has Morgan treated you so far?
“So nice. Mrs. Hagness and Mr. Webb are awesome. Mr. Enoch, my roommate, is great and the kids are so nice. I really have enjoyed it.”
What do you expect students to learn from you?
“I hope they find their unique voice. I would like them to be able to analyze media and to be able to make an appropriate interpretation of it.”
What is your favorite part about Morgan?
“My new digs, my room. I can open and close the windows with the click of a button.”
Do you have any plans to expand the technology program or start a club?
“I do. We have lots of stuff going. We have to do a lot of curriculum revisions, But I’m hoping to make Digital Imaging I and II, Video Production I and II. Maybe have a live broadcast, and audio recording class,and an interior design class.”
Senior Vicky Valverde takes Intro to Communications and says her favorite part of the class is that you learn how to edit pictures. Her thoughts on Ms. Mularski are that “She’s really nice and definitely makes the class interesting. She shows us different types of media and the technology behind it.”
Freshman Ashley Miller has Ms. Mularski as her Advisory and Study teacher. She says, “Ms. Mularski is an all around person. She’s a sweet, funny, very modern and overall a nice teacher.”
Ms. Mularski is looking forward to working with students and encouraging their creativity.
