Matt Rowland of Arden Middle School is this week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week
Matt Rowland of Arden Middle School in the San Juan Unified School District is this week’s SEVA Teacher. Mr. Rowland has been teaching for 20 years and is always excited to share his knowledge of media with his students every day. When you visit Mr. Rowland’s classroom, you find students from all different backgrounds that share a love for media production. In Mr. Rowland’s class, each student is able to contribute their unique talents and interests when producing, letting their creativity shine. Mr. Rowland encourages and cultivates creativeness in each student and helps them further develop their skills by teaching them the technical abilities they need to bring their vision to life. He also works with his students to develop their own learning library of tutorial videos that once again shows just how much emphasis Mr. Rowland puts on letting students use their own voice throughout the production process. Mr. Rowland makes the most of the studio space and we are amazed by what his students are able to create within the classroom. He empowers his students to lead each other and pulls everyone’s creative strengths together creating truly collaborative pieces. Thank you, Mr. Rowland, for showing us the power of bringing creative minds together from all different background to produce something truly phenomenal.
