Melissa May from Inderkum High School in the Natomas Unified School District is this week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week!
It’s difficult to put into words what this week’s SEVA Teacher means to the SEVA program. Melissa May is only on her third year of teaching, but she brings a wealth of knowledge from real world experience into her classroom. Mrs. May came to Inderkum High School after a longtime career with ABC 10 as a TV journalist. Her career on TV is part of what makes Mrs. May such a dynamic and unique part of the SEVA Teacher Program. She is able to continuously give real-world applications of what the work students are doing in her class, and this has become a game changer for her students at Inderkum High School.
Mrs. May does anything she can to help her students follow their dreams and she tries to make sure every door is open to them. This includes taking advantage of partnerships, such as those with professional sports organizations. Mrs. May understands that the future of media is evolving and believes this helps not only prepare, but excite her students for the endless possibilities that could be in their future. When speaking with Mrs. May’s students, it’s clear that her passion and dedication has created a spark in them and we can’t wait to see what they are able to accomplish. Thank you, Mrs. May, for always being willing to share your knowledge and experiences with everyone you meet. You have encouraged us all to look at media from a different perspective and your passion to help students is truly admirable.
