Tech Apps & Journalism



Jacob Elbert

Journalism Program

I have a knack for the creative arts and strive to impress that passion upon my students. My classes are student led and focused on providing real-world skills in the industry-standard applications and tools that are required by nearly all of today's creative professions. They will also learn practical skills regarding lighting, casting, communication with clientele, time and asset management, organization and problem-solving under time-constraints. The courses listed on the top banner will run students through the Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premier Pro, Audition, After Effects, Bridge, and Lightroom.

My overarching goal is

lighting the fire of self-motivated education.

All of my courses have a focus on being future ready and developing an after high school game plan. Whether that be building a portfolio for entrance into the workforce, applying for scholarships, researching technical institutes, or scoping out colleges and universities. Education is not "one size fits all" and it is my job as an educator to help my students find the path to their most compatible fit.
