Karen Albert of Robert L. McCaffrey Middle School in the Galt Joint Unified School District is this week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week. Ms. Albert is always one to take on a challenge in order to push her students to do their best. It is obvious that her classroom is a special place for her students and the admiration her students have for her speaks wonders about her teaching. Her students are highly are encouraged to venture out in the community to document important happenings. Both the school community and the small town community of Galt are constantly at the forefront of her media program, KDOG News. In this way, Ms. Albert’s students are empowered to be leaders in the community, which is a very unique opportunity for Middle School students. The positive feedback that her students receive when they venture out is proof that the skills she instills in them will benefit them for years to come. Thank you, Ms. Albert, for showing what can happen when you empower youth to be leaders in the community.
