A LITTLE ABOUT MR. THOMAS


HELLO!


I'M JASON THOMAS, AND I'M EXCITED ABOUT OUR MEDIA PROGRAM HERE AT OAKCREST HIGH SCHOOL.
IT'S MY PLEASURE TO BE ABLE TO COME TO OAKCREST EVERYDAY AND WORK WITH OUR STUDENTS. OUR PROGRAM HAS CONTINUED TO GROW OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS AND IT IS MY COMMITMENT TO SEE THAT IT CONTINUES TO GROW. THE GROWTH OF THE DIGITAL AGE HAS BROUGHT ABOUT UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES FOR STUDENTS TO PROMOTE THEIR WORK, AND I AM PROUD THAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE DONE JUST THAT. A NUMBER OF THEM HAVE RECEIVED RECOGNITION FOR THE EVENTS AND CONTESTS THEY HAVE ENTERED THEIR WORK INTO. WITH THE ADDITION OF PODCASTING THIS YEAR, OUR CLASSES HAVE TRULY BECOME A PRODUCT OF THAT DIGITAL AGE, AND ARE NOW ABLE TO SHARE THEIR WORK WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE, IN WAYS UNLIKE BEFORE.

MY PHILOSOPHY:

I VALUE SPECIFIC QUALITIES IN OUR CLASSROOM THAT I FIND IMPORTANT TO IMPRESS UPON OUR STUDENTS, TO BETTER PREPARE THEM FOR A CAREER IN THE MEDIA OR FILM INDUSTRY, OR WHATEVER THEY PURSUE IN LIFE.
THOSE QUALITIES ARE: DEDICATION, PERSEVERANCE, IMAGINATION, WORKING WITH A TEAM AND STRIVING TO IMPROVE AND NOT SETTLING FOR MEDIOCRITY. ITS THESE SAME QUALITIES I HAVE ALWAYS EMPHASIZED NOT ONLY IN OUR STUDENTS WORK, BUT IN MY OWN WORK IN THE CLASSROOM AND OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL AS WELL.
 
THE NATURE OF OUR PROGRAM RELIES HEAVILY ON THE STUDENT AND THEIR ABILITY TO COME TOGETHER TO ACHIEVE A COMMON GOAL. I WORK HARD EACH YEAR TO CREATE A FAMILY-LIKE ATMOSPHERE WITHIN THE CLASSROOM, AND IT HAS PAID OFF IN OUR ABILITY TO COLLABOATE TOGETHER IN THE CLASSROOM, AND PARTICIPATE IN ALL OF THE COMMUNITY PROJECTS WE TAKE PART IN.

HOBBIES

IN MY SPARE TIME I ENJOY OIL PAINTING, FOLLOWING THE YANKEES AND SAN ANTONIO SPURS, PLAYING GOLF AND WORKING ON VIDEO CONTESTS.

JUST FOR FUN
HERES AN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE VIDEO CONTESTS TO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN TO DATE, AND ONE I LOOK FORWARD TO TAKING PART IN AGAIN. THIS PARTICULAR CONTEST WAS SPONSORED BY WWW.DOTHEJINGLE.COM AND ASKED PARTICIPANTS CREATE A JINGLE AND VIDEO ADVERTISEMENT FOR 1-800-SAFEAUTO. OUR VIDEO DID WELL BUT IN THE END DID NOT RECIEVE ENOUGH VOTES TO WIN.
