Don Goble, broadcast teacher at Ladue Horton Watkins High School, has been named an Adobe Creative Educator by the software company.
The distinction is part of the Adobe Education Leader global program, supports educators in teaching and learning across every subject area and grade level.
Adobe Creative Educators leverage professional development coursework and discussions to foster creativity in their classrooms and develop critical thinking skills in their students.
“I was recommended for the global Adobe Education Leader program because of the outstanding media content our students create using Adobe software in our classes,” Goble said.
“This recognition is a testament to the excellence and creativity of our Ladue Schools students.”
To earn the distinction, Goble submitted student work and an essay about how and why he uses Adobe software in his classes.
He also attended professional development over the summer which required him to create a curriculum that uses Adobe Education applications.
Only 360 educators from around the world were selected as Adobe Creative Educators this year.
Goble now is working toward the second tier of Adobe Creative Educator distinction, which requires him to create a full course of lessons using Adobe applications.
This is Goble’s 16th year teaching at LHWHS, and for the past 15 years he has also served as the district’s Video Manager.
He teaches Broadcast Technology and Multimedia Sports Production to all high school grades.
