This week’s SEVA teacher of the week has a long history with the SEVA program that stretches back over 15 years. Mr. Youngs heads up the Broadcast Journalism Pathway at Cosumnes Oaks High School in the Elk Grove Unified School District. 15 years ago Mr. Youngs worked with SECC to set up his first studio, and he’s been going strong ever since. At C.O., his students rely on his constant support to help them on the broadcast pathway, and are able to develop a special bond as he guides them throughout their high school years. He has a special knack for helping his students learn to be responsible for their work and has used distance learning as a way to instill more self-reliance in each one. In a time when student engagement is so critical, he credits his students with keeping the class moving forward daily as they regularly churn out videos from home. Through the school’s broadcast “Wolfpack TV,” his student have continued to provide important news for the entire school community. Additionally, his students are able to be use their creativity to cope with the changing world around them. Thank you, Mr. Youngs, for showing how to inspire your students to keep creating no matter the circumstances.
