CENTRAL POINT, Ore –
Two teachers at Crater High School are using innovative ways to inspire students.
"I want kids to engage with what they are learning,” Crater High School teacher Jeremy Sinks said.
"If I can get kids to look at themselves and believe in themselves their chances for success are so much greater,” Crater High School teacher Mike Rogan said.
The two have been teaching at Crater High School for a combined 36 years.
"Everything we do is centered around learning technology and we use it as a tool it’s just like a pencil and a piece of paper. We use it to create and do things,” Crater High School teacher Jeremy Sinks said.
The two are a big part of the Crater School of Business and the classes they teach are centered on learning technology.
"Our foundation principle is teamwork communication and problem solving and as I look at everything we try to create through our freshman through senior year everything follows within that guideline. We are very project based,” Crater High School teacher Mike Rogan said.
About three months ago Jeremy started his own podcast.
"My teaching partner Mike Rogan was diagnosed with cancer last spring," Crater High School teacher Jeremy Sinks said.
So when Mike left Jeremy had to do the podcast for him.
"Just to hear the stories it made me feel like I was a part of it,” Crater High School teacher Mike Rogan said.
Now the podcast is 12 episodes down and it’s not going away anytime soon.
""It’s one week at a time one game at time and that’s what keeps me going,” Crater High School teacher Jeremy Sinks said.
