  1. My name is Ada Hann. I am teaching in Hong Kong. Stop Motion is a fun topic and that’s why I am doing this course.

  2. Hi my name is Levent and I teach at an international school in Hong Kong and I have just been informed that I will be teaching a film course next year and am doing this to get some ideas for my new course.

  3. Hello my name is Lita I am now a teacher at a California Continuation High School. I have taught CTE courses for 30 years in regular High School, so this year is all new to me. I use Google Classroom and I am working my kids through the Google CS Club on “Storytelling”. So I want to stay a step or two ahead of them and understand this process myself.
    As hobbies I raise, collect & show exotic roses (I have 52 plants). I breed, raise and race Thoroughbred Race Horses in Southern California. I also trail ride 3+ times per week in the river canyons nearby. I love to travel and enjoy good old rock & roll.

  4. Hi, I’m Andres Lio, though everyone calls me Andy for short. I am the Highly able and Talented Progarmme Coordinator of my school; I also lead the school’s Maker Space task force and teach English as a Second Language to IGCSE students. I have to wear sevarl hats during my daily life, as I constantly move from subject to subject. That allows me to have an interconnected vision of learning which I strongly support and would love to harness through various forms of learning. stop-motion is one of them, as it intertwines creativity through story telling as well as the use of app-based technology along with arts and crafts, being the sky the limit…I love music and I can tell am a pretty good salsa dancer!!! 😉

  5. Hello! my name is Monet. I am an elementary art teacher is Tennessee. I am taking this course because I will be teaching a stop motion visual story telling enrichment class at my school.
