This week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week is Kyle Heckey from Sutter Middle School in the Sacramento City Unified School District. Mr. Heckey is well known for his abundant creativity and his eagerness to share what he knows with his students. He gives his students the flexibility to create whatever they are passionate about, and is always there to help in any way he can. His laid-back style infuses with his positive attitude to give students the freedom and encouragement to share their authentic voice through whatever projects they take on – from media to woodworking. His teaching is so special, he was featured on a Disney+ Original Series!
Mr. Heckey’s students continued strengthening their media skills during distance learning. His students recorded videos from home to share what he means to them. His students also continued broadcasting Sutter’s “The Pick” during distance learning and were able to continue showing their creativity through video. His students also celebrated many big wins at this year’s SEVAs! Thank you, Mr. Heckey, for inspiring the next great generation of filmmakers.
