My name is Rich Bateman and I am currently on the teaching staff at Newbury Park High School, Newbury Park, California. I teach 3 blocks of Digital Photography and 2 blocks of Computer Graphics & Design. The Computer Graphic Design course introduces the students to both the 2D & 3D visual design space. To gain this valuable design experience, students learn Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Cinema 4D,
I have two Educational Master Degrees from Azusa Pacific University; the first in Curriculum and Instruction and the most recent in Educational Technology and Learning. My previous teaching and administrative duties have included: 4th and 6th Grade self-contained classrooms; 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Social Science; Social Science Department Chair; and Technology Coordinator for Sycamore Canyon Middle School in Newbury Park, California. Coaching volleyball and broadcasting career mentoring are additional passions I have pursued during my twenty years of teaching service with the Conejo Valley Unified School District. I am a faithful agent of change through technology implementation and want to utilize open source and 3D printing technologies to further K-12 "maker" education in the physical and virtual classrooms. I believe in teaching high school students the rigors of New Media technology to provide a foundation in college and career readiness.
