Joshua Weeks from Bell Avenue School in the Robla School District is this week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week. He has been teaching for 9 years and has come to realize that media allows students a way to communicate their vision like never before. He loves that media gives his students an avenue to express themselves visually so he can clearly see their ideas. Mr. Weeks knows just how important giving his students the outlet to share their vision can be to their overall academic success. He is thankful that his students come to him with a passion for media because of platforms like YouTube. He uses their interest as a jumping off point to help them become content creators instead of just consumers. Having their weekly news program “Tiger News” helps keep his students constantly refining their craft. In addition to their weekly newscast, Mr. Weeks uses the SEVA program to give his students that extra push to do their best work. Watching the Public Service Announcements his students make always puts a smile on his face. Likewise, his students all have smiles when they talk about their amazing media teacher! Thank you, Mr. Weeks, for your drive to help students share their vision.
