Joy Everywhere

By Vanessa Gomes

This documentary focus on the story of Joy Mason, teacher of lower Elementary at George Watts for 6 years. This story followed Ms. Mason during several moments in classroom and outside classroom and proposed to show how Ms. Mason interact with the kids and how this interaction shape them as learners and human beings. For that reason, the pictures portray not only Ms. Mason/students interaction, but the interactions between the students. Another focus is showing how Ms. Joy Mason, living up to her name, cultivates a deep sense of joy and silliness in her kids which they bring everywhere they go. Finally, this story shows a little how having Ms. Mason in these kids lives changes their perspective of the world and bring easiness to their growth and learning processes.
