Our SEVA Teacher of the Week is Brooke Beckett from Galt High School in the Galt Joint Union High School District.
Brooke Beckett has been teaching for the past ten years and has shown that she truly understands what great opportunities media creates for students. Brooke uses her teaching to show students how to express themselves, while simultaneously showing them that media has real world applications and instills universal skills. Ms. Beckett’s talent was recently recognized by her district when they awarded her the 2018 Teacher of the Year.
Ms. Beckett also has the great ability of recognizing talent in students and pulling them in. Just last year she saw a student filming on campus and helped them take part in the SEVA program. She is able to broaden student horizons by teaching new programs and skills. Ms. Beckett constantly pushes her students to higher levels of rigor which shows in the videos her students submit. There is a passion that comes through when talking to her students and it is clear that Ms. Beckett is a driving force behind that passion. Thank you Brooke for helping represent what the SEVAs are all about and for helping show students just how great media can be!
