Thuy Pham of Creative Connections Art Academy in the Twin Rivers Unified School District is this week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week.
Mr. Pham has been cultivating student’s creativity for the last 20 years and is always finding new and unique ways to go about his lessons. He is able to teach his students complex ideas by combining them with new and exciting technologies. His methods help students fully invest in their learning and gets them excited to come to school. Through multiple peer and teacher review phases, his students learn perseverance and that your first draft is never your final draft. He has become infamous in the SEVA Program for creating full length movies; a process that teaches each student hard work and dedication. Each completed project is truly celebrated not only within his class, but Mr. Pham makes sure the entire community recognizes the incredible work his students do.
It’s this innovation and creativity that helps his student channel their own skills and create remarkable videos. Mr. Pham’s students have swept the School News K-3 and PSA K-3 categories the last three years in a row! Each year his students amaze our judges with their use of editing and technical skills. Thank you, Mr. Pham, for all that you do for your students and for being an inspiration to the entire SEVA Program.
