This class somehow changed who I am and what I want for myself within the course of just a year. I had so many doors opened for me and experienced the thrill of tiny ideas being brought to reality with tangible results. Be prepared for it to transform the way you think about going to class.
SED was more than just a class. It was our company; providing us with opportunities and skills for our future.
This class challenged us to apply design thinking to real-world problems. It allowed us the flexibility to use our own creative ideas, and inspired us to change the world.
Mike is without a doubt one of the most naturally gifted and hardworking teachers I have worked with in my 15 plus years as an educator. He is passionate, committed, innovative, and most importantly student centered in his approach to teaching.
SED sparked an interest and led to a career path I would have otherwise never taken.
Every once in a while a teacher emerges who is a total game-changer for students and the teaching profession overall. Mike’s that teacher. In Mike’s class students have the chance to imagine “their own adventure” and then design, refine and build it. It’s not always predictable or tidy, but it is real learning for a lifetime.
SED teaches students how to harness their creativity in ways that make a difference.
This unique classroom environment has provided the opportunity for me to learn outside the borders of the classroom. This is what makes this class, my favorite. TAKE THIS CLASS!
IBDT and SED are classes in which students exercise their creativity, work collaboratively, and grow into problem-solvers. They’ve helped me find direction on what I want to study for the rest of my life.
