TURNING POINT ACADEMY
RADIO PROGRAM COORDINATOR
I was introduced to Turning Point Academy (TPA) through an Education Reform course in my Ph.D. program. TPA is an alternative school in Charlotte for students who have been expelled from their home school. While working on a course project with TPA, I provided additional programs and resources for the school such as the Teen Radio Program in which I taught students podcasting and took a group of 8 students on a field trip to Carolina School of Broadcasting with teachers and staff. Additionally, I have taught Web Design courses and brought a professional photographer to the school to experience a live photo shoot and learn about photography.
