Ms. Forrest's Mini-Bio
As a first-year teacher, I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to teach these AWESOME students at Autrey Mill!! Here's a little more info about me and my background in Broadcast News.
After graduating from the University of Georgia, I landed my first full-time job as a Producer at NBC 26 (WAGT-TV) in Augusta, GA. You may be asking yourself what a producer actually does. To sum it up, we give the show a "heartbeat." We are responsible for writing scripts, choosing what stories go into a newscast, and where they're going to go (some of my former NBC 26 news team pictured to the left).
So, why teaching now?
Turns out, Iwhile I loved what I was doing, I was happiest while teaching it to others in the newsroom. It was rewarding to train others and help them turn their writing into something that could air during our evening newscast.
I'm looking forward to this new opportunity and can't wait for a great semester!
