SEVA Teacher Dale Means
Dale Means came to the Rosemont High School media program just this fall after a long career teaching media in Sacramento City Unified. Starting off at a new school in a distance learning model isn’t easy, but he made the transition seamlessly and his students appreciate how much being in his virtual classroom feels so much like being in a regular classroom. He finds a way to connect with each one of his students, which takes a special talent in a virtual setting at a new school. He teaches with empathy which allows for students to be seen and feel encouraged to express themselves creatively. His connection with his students has also been a positive light in his own world, and he admits that he is looking forward to the day that he can “meet” the students in real life on the Rosemont campus. He is a true supporter of student expression and encourages his students to be content creators, not just consumers. In sharing their voices, his students have inspired him with their displays of skill, creativity, humor, compassion and perseverance. Thank you, Means, for showing what can happen when you are a true supporter student vision.
