This week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week is a true champion for media education and a longtime supporter of the SEVA program. Julie Del Agua teaches media at Albert Einstein Middle School in the Sacramento City Unified School District and has advocated for technology in every role in education she’s held during her long career. She appreciates how media can share student voice beyond the four walls of the classroom and works tirelessly to ensure students have this opportunity. During distance learning, Mrs. Del Agua has helped students expand their worlds further by focusing on the community. Her ability to connect her students to the community has undoubtedly helped them during this time of quarantine. Likewise, her principal credits her with helping the entire student body feel connected to school at a time when that connection is so vitally important. Her students say her kindness and dependability keep them motivated in her class. For many years she has been an active participant in the SEVA program and works to mentor and share her knowledge with fellow teachers. Thank you, Mrs. Del Agua, for inspiring a whole generation of students to share their voice through media.
