Oliver Ommotto Senior Boys Dorm Master & Head Of Media Studies

B.A Communication (Daystar University),International Diploma for Teachers and Trainers (Cambridge International Exams),International Diploma in Teaching with ICT (Cambridge International Exams)

 

I teach GCE: Media and BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Creative Media Production at both A-levels and KS4 respectively. I am also a Dorm Parent for Kinangop Dorm. My teaching journey started seven years ago.

 

I joined the teaching profession with some experience in journalism and public relations. I cherish the opportunity I have had to work in Kenya's mainstream media - KTN. I also worked as Editor for Kenya's leading real estate magazine - HomesKenya Magazine. These are experiences that I brought into the classroom and have inspired my students to pursue the best

standards in Media Studies.  

 

The department is proud to have produced the 'Top media student in the world' in the June 2013 exam series for Edexcel - Roie Ben-Itzhak. It was humbling experience when I recently received accreditation as Lead Assessor for Edexcel in Applied GCE: Media.

 

My greatest joy as a teacher is to see my students maturing into responsible young adults. I always enjoy listening to success stories about

alumni who have been under my care several years after graduation.  

 

My interest in Journalism dates back to my student days in Daystar University where I served as Editor-in-Chief for The Involvement (the school bi-weekly newspaper) and Station Manager for Shine 103.1 FM (the school radio station).
