Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

James Ducat, the yearbook adviser at Walsworth customer school Beaumont High School in Beaumont, Calif., was recently honored as one of 10 regional finalists by the California League of High Schools in its 2011 High School Educator of the Year contest.

After being selected for the honor, Ducat was featured in a nice article by the local newspaper, The Press-Enterprise.

As Ducat explained in the article, he wants his students “to be able to express themselves clearly, whatever they are writing” and “be able to critically consider what they are experiencing in the world.”
