Roberts 1 Teacher’s Devotion Inspires Kids Teaching six classes, running the high school newspaper, advising the yearbook club, and producing the morning announcements for a high school? How does Pam Pendery, 45, seem to fit all of that into her schedule? Ms. Pendery has been teaching at Anderson High School in Cincinnati for ten years. She started the newspaper, morning announcements, and the broadcast journalism class. “I saw a need for students to get more involved with media and its aspects. Students need to learn the skills of communication that are so vital in life.” She is currently the only teacher for the mass communications, journalism, and broadcast journalism classes. This requires a lot of effort on her part. “On a day-to-day basis I grade papers, look over articles for the newspapers, review features for the yearbook, and make sure the announcements are done for the next day.” Luckily she has some help from her student editors for the newspaper and yearbook. The announcements are done by students so she gives them the stories and makes sure they actually film the announcements. She works on these projects throughout the entire school year. Since she is the only teacher working on them, the success or failure rests on her. It’s a big responsibility but she willing takes it on every year.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
