Love of Drama and working with youth have been the motivating factors behind JETS. We are in our 16th year and yet again we feel blessed and confident that this year promises to be bigger and better. Students have grown with us over the last 16 years and have been very successful in the industry i.e. WAAPA, Short Films, Advertisements, Channel 10 TV series, plays and currently working on a Feature Film "Alexander" - Written/Directed/Produced by Shaun Gonzalvo". We are so fortunate to have so many talented students as part of the Jets team.
I am constantly thriving to expand my knowledge of the dramatic art form and undertake many theatre workshops (acting and backstage). Many contacts have been made in the industry, which extends our network not just to the Eastern States but to the USA as well. Our casting registration has proved to be exceptionally successful for students.
My focus is on student-centered learning and promoting a positive fun environment where everyone is treated equal and given a voice to be heard. Our dynamic classes give students a forum to express themselves whilst having fun in a non-threatening environment.
My greatest reward as a teacher is student success and I still cry every time one of our students does something that I have helped them have the confidence to undertake. I always follow through with each student’s dreams and goals and hope I have helped make their wings strong enough to fly and to soar to greater heights.
I have been an adjudicator at the Northam Eisteddfod 2012- current.
2015 - current, I was invited to the inaugural Kuala Lumpur International Comedy Festival to run Children's Comedy Workshops and to also manage the international Comedians. I was also part of the Festival that extended throughout Malaysia with the Laugh Malaysia tour.
I have been a judge at the Canning Showtime Talent show from 2016 to current.
I am truly excited to have such a fantastic team as we enter another great year. We promote a friendly family atmosphere at JETS and hold true to the fact that everyone will “Be Scene and Heard”!
