Wendy Morris

LAUSD - Harbor Occupational Center
San Pedro, Ca
I have worked in Los Angeles Unified School District's Division of Adult and Career Education since 2003. My experience includes a formal education in teaching Rhetoric and Composition, high school credit recover, California High School Exit Exam test preparation, and most recently, Community College Humanities Lecturing. I began my career at Freemont Community Adult School and have worked in several South Bay High School Credit Recovery after school programs in the Individualized Instruction Lab. I have taught at Harbor Occupational Center since 2003 to present as an English Lab instructor and Basic Language Art Writing since 2018. I have gained immeasurable experience working with a diverse student population who often returns to school to obtain a high school diploma or prepare for gainful employment, and my main objective is to assure these students achieve their goals.            
     Combining the traditional academic classroom environment with technology promotes the unification of various media modalities, which is a rewarding experience for students. I have had much success with the various learning styles when students are able to make subjective choices in modes of presentation. Appropriating sources from old concepts in the "brick and mortar" and merging them with new technological concepts allows students to move away from dominant ideologies and create new discourse.
