This week’s 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 eleven years and has shown that she truly understands what great opportunities media creates for her students. Brooke uses her teaching to show students how to express themselves, while simultaneously showing them the real-world applications of media and instilling universal skills. Ms. Beckett’s talents were recognized by her district when they selected her to receive the 2018 Teacher of the Year Award. Ms. Beckett also has the great ability of recognizing her students’ talents and pulls that out so each student can truly shine. She broadens student horizons by teaching new programs and skills that will continue to have an impact not just in media, but throughout their lives. Ms. Beckett always pushes her students to higher levels of rigor which shows each year in the video her students submit to the SEVAs. When talking to her students, it is clear that they have a passion for media and that the driving force behind that passion is Ms. Beckett. Thank you, Ms. Beckett, for continuing to represent what the SEVAs are all about and for helping show students just how amazing media can be!
