Visual Technologies Teacher
Kokomo, IN
Jill Parry is a veteran of 15 years teaching such subjects as 3D Animation, Interactive Media, Commercial Photography, Introduction to Communication and Television Production at Kokomo Area Career Center in Kokomo, Indiana.  Jill received her B.A. in Telecommunications from Michigan State and her M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from Oakland University.  Her path has been a winding one.  What she refers to as her "previous life" was spent as a news reporter and music show host at radio stations throughout Michigan.  Now she is living her lifelong dream as an educator of high school students.  Jill believes we are all creative and that there are many ways to help students engage fully in their learning - we are just beginning to scratch the surface of that understanding. Jill quotes Walt Disney when she says, "If you can dream it, you can do it."
