This week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week is Sylvia Molina of Sierra Enterprise Elementary School in the Elk Grove Unified School District. Ms. Molina has taught for over 20 years, but only recently stepped into the role of media teacher. Once she decided to start the media program at her site, there was no stopping her. Her principal credits her with getting the new program off the ground and giving her students the special experience of sharing their voice through media. The Sierra Enterprise Media Group hasn’t let distance learning hinder them and they continue to virtually meet in order to learn and grow with one another. Ms. Molina has found a silver lining in the world of distance learning in that students are forced to think outside of the box and practice their patience. She truly appreciates when students can share their knowledge with their peers, and she takes time to make sure she learns as much from her students as they learn from her. Her students appreciate how she is able to meet them where they are and help them to learn step by step. Her perseverance is mirrored in her students and they continue to inspire one another with their persistence in the face of challenges. Thank you, Ms. Molina, for your constant dedication to your students, whether in person or virtually.
