• Craig "Mr. CJ" Jaris

    What an amazing year this has been! I've spent most of my adult life championing positive change, in part by harnessing technology where it enables us all to accomplish more. Change agent or chief instigator are two labels that suit me well. As a dad and grandfather, I enjoy continually learning while encouraging those around me to pursue lifelong learning.

    Working with students from 9th through 12th grade, the digital media courses I lead are immersive. Students are best served if they take them 'in order' as outlined in the GISD Secondary Course Guide.

    Students work on a variety of projects, both independently and in small groups. We cover a wide variety of digital media experiences. In addition to the classroom-based work, there is mandatory time outside of the classroom for projects and assignments on location.

    Sports, Performing Arts, Film, and Broadcast are a few of the key student event programs we're able to work on. All of them require time outside of the classroom to achieve success in A/V studies.

    Principles of Arts, Audio/Video Technology & Communications
    Audio/Video Production 1 & 2
    Audio/Video Production Labs 1 & 2

    Credit Recovery (in room 121c)

    Assignments and student work is managed and accessible through Google Classroom.

    Beginning in the summer of 2023 all of our A/V related class work and assignments are moving into the Schoology application.
    Both Google Classroom and Schoology are easily accessed through Classlink login for both students and parents.


    BTW! email is the best means of reaching me!
