Laura Harmon from Samuel Jackman Middle School is this week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week
This week’s SEVA Teacher comes from Samuel Jackman Middle School in the Elk Grove Unified School District. Laura Harmon is in her eighth year of teaching and continually looks for new challenges in order to better teacher the students she serves. Just this past year she tasked her students with doing a live, daily newscast. Although there was a large learning curve, Ms. Harmon has been able to navigate her way through it and, as a result, has increased the level of responsibility, time management and other important life skills that her students are able to learn. She is constantly sharing her joy of the technical and creative side of media with her students and shows them how easily these skills complement each other. She has a deep understanding of how video production skills can help create successful, well-rounded students.
Ms. Harmon takes full advantage of the entire SEVA program and uses the opportunities it provides to show her students what they can do with a bit of inspiration and motivation! Jackman Middle School has been a serious contender in the PSA category in the past and it is plain to see how the program grows each year. Thank you, Ms. Harmon, for being a supporter of the SEVAs and for constantly looking to improve her skills for the betterment of her students. As you said, the sky is the limit!
