This week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week is Brad Augusta. Mr. Augusta has been teaching for 22 years and now teaches media at Pacific Elementary School. He encourages students to enjoy the creative process and utilize it to find the best way to express themselves through their media projects. Students focus on brainstorming as a collective so that they can work as a team to find new subjects to explore and use to create content. While there have been hurdles to overcome during distance learning, with Mr. Augusta’s continual support students continue to create media and find a creative space to adapt and find new routes through which to learn and apply their media skills. Even within a virtual setting Mr. Augusta not only inspires his students to find their voice and be creative, but he too is inspired by his student’s abilities to rise above any obstacles they may encounter to continue to learn and share their ideas and passion for media. It is clear that the consistent guidance from Mr. Augusta will instill the ability for his students to continue to think outside the box through not only these times but as they progress on their path in media. Thank you, Mr. Augusta for seeing the potential in every student and motivating them to find their passions so that they can truly share their vision as content creators.
