Jerry Bandy of Pleasant Grove High School in the Elk Grove Unified School District is this week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week. Mr. Bandy has the kind of steady patience that really helps students feel safe enough to push themselves to new heights. He excels at teaching leadership and time management skills that students can use not just in his media class, but in all their school subjects. Not only do his students learn these vital skills, they also are able to develop their passion for creativity with his genuine support. Their school broadcast PGTV always contains some truly unique segments that really highlight student voice. He is able to keep expectations high, and the results from speak for themselves. During distance learning, his students continue to reach out and learn more about all things media production, even when they aren’t currently enrolled in his class! He is truly an inspiration to his students and he is able to get them to see new and exciting possibilities for their future. Thank you, Mr. Bandy for being a positive force in the lives of your students.
