Groups will switch focuses on October 27 (this is 2 weeks into Q2). Some students from Broadcast will be asked to repeat, their focus so that we can maintain 12 people on the broadcast side. These students in turn will have back to back creative media focus in the 2nd semester. Please refer to the Advanced Media Member Profile in your drive for contact info.

Ever since I discovered the stats features in Vimeo, I've tried to incorporate it is as a metric to measure my students success year by year. We got a respectable 11,000 plays, but only about 2,000 finishes. This means less than 20% people tuning into our videos are finishing their play throughs. This is about average when it comes to standard viewing metrics. The other thing to consider when looking at the numbers is that teachers often play our shows to a whole class of 20 - 30 students. So the actual audience we're reaching is probably higher than 11,000 views. Still, the numbers are encouraging and the hope is that we can continue to grow our viewership to reflect the changes we're making to the Advanced Media program this coming year. Let's get it!

About Mr. Toyota
When they say "professions run in the family," the saying holds true for my family and I. My mother, my aunty, and my grandmother were all teachers before me and I didn't ever think I'd be the one to take up the mantle. I've been teaching since 2008 and started at the age of 23 years old.
I'm a National Board Certified teacher with a Bachelor's in Secondary Education: Social Studies. Additionally, I have served in various roles ranging from an HSTA PD Trainer and Consultant, AVID Site Team Member, Club Advisory, Volleyball Coach, Event Organizer, and Chair for the CxK Media Cohort.
Basic Teaching Philosophy
There are constantly occurring learning opportunities. As a teacher, it is my duty to not only help students see these opportunities at face value, but to help them profit from these experiences.
I believe that learning is growing and that growing in the right direction is an important aspect of being successful. I can help the imperfect, I can hardly help those who are perfect. Although academics is an important part of a child's life, I understand that a child's life is even more important than school as an institution. Homework, tests, grades, and due dates pale in comparison to preparing a child for their future. I am but one person amongst a community of people that will come into a child's life, whether my role is small or large, my actions have lasting implications.
I will always strive to make a difference, to help student's grow in the right direction, to develop their passions, and to prepare them for the struggles ahead. It is my duty, my honor, and my will as their teacher.
