John Oestreich

Hi! Welcome to my staff page. My name is John Oestreich and I have several jobs here at WHS. I teach Mass Media 1 and 2, Video Productions 1,2, and 3, Advanced Video Productions 1,2, and 3, as well as Broadcast Journalism 1,2, and 3. I also run the Mass Media club, and the Jumbotron at football games. I also run the school TV studio which produces ROCK TV on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

In my spare moments, I also am the assistant varsity baseball coach. I am very passionate about my curriculum - I love what I do. My hope is to foster knowledge about the way in which our student body analyzes information - information that is coming faster and from a larger number of sources than in any other time in human history. We watch and make a great deal of video in my class; I pride myself on creating a classroom atmosphere where students feel comfortable enough to take creative risks when making their projects. The types of projects we make are very eclectic - from persuasive editorials to music videos I try to let them get a feel for a great variety of genres.

To look at what my class is doing, please look at my Canvas page.
