Wendy Esquivel from Will Rogers Middle School in the San Juan Unified School District is this week’s SEVA Teacher of the Week. Ms. Esquivel has learned to expertly navigate the uniqueness of middle school during her impressive teaching career. One of the greatest lessons Ms. Esquivel has shared with her students is to put their heart into everything they do and to let their creativity shine. She is truly able to connect with her students and inspire them to share their vision. Ms. Esquivel is proud to be part of the SEVA program which she feels provides lifelong memories for her students and motivation for them to continue to work harder and improve year after year. Likewise, she has helped to create a special bond with fellow middle school SEVA teachers where they can learn and grow together.
During distance learning, Ms. Esquivel was able to keep inspiring her students to continue creating the Mustang Morning News. Students were able to hold on to the special community spirit of Will Rogers with their weekly broadcast even from home. As the new school year starts, we know Ms. Esquivel will continue to help her students connect through media. Thank you, Ms. Esquivel, for showing the impact media can have in middle school.
