Shootin’ the Breeze, Episode 3: Electronics…Problem or Not?

On our third episode we interviewed SMHS students and teachers regarding the new electronic policy.
Nathan Gomez
SMHS adds a new place holder for the phone devices, called the “lock box.”

In episode three of “‘Shootin’ the Breeze” we interview fellow students and teachers from Santa Maria High School about this year’s phone policy. We asked them a series of questions on their opinions regarding the policy. We assured that we got different teachers from different subjects to determine a wide variety of opinions. As well as getting a broad selection of student grade levels for the same reason. Each had the opportunity to share their insight with us.

The school has recently purchased a new system of “phone holders,” or as Mr. Guiremand put it, “phone prison.” The school aims to reduce student distraction with this new system. How do you think this will turn out? Do you agree with this new approach? As you know these are opinions so, please make sure you respect those who were featured on the podcast episode.

About the Contributors
Rodrigo Garcia, Contributor
My name is Rodrigo Garcia. This will be my first and final year as a Breeze Contributor as I am now a senior. If I would've known about the Journalism class earlier, I definitely would've joined. As I mentioned already, I'm a senior, Class of 2024. Some goals that I have while working on the Breeze is to hopefully release more podcast episodes, get even more articles published than before, and hopefully start doing some video production. I've always been pretty decent with handling video production so once we hopefully start to do videos, I could be a helping hand with it. Some stuff I like to do in my free time is draw. I usually prefer to draw digitally on my computer. Traditional drawing, not so much. I don't mind it, but I usually sketch when it comes to traditional drawing. But in all honesty, I love all things art. I even try to read books to understand the past history of art. I also love to play video games. I've been playing video games for most of my time being alive. I don't play very often because of school and other stuff I prioritize but I still try my best to make time to play a game whether if it's by myself or with my sister, it's all fine with me. I like to do voice acting/voice impressions. As someone who's been watching TV for years there's no doubt that the interest of mimicking voices was something I liked. I'm pretty good with doing voices from cartoons from the 60's to early 2000's. If you know some kind of show, chances are I might have a voice impression for that. I also love to go on walks. I'm not the sporty type of person but I always appreciate a nice walk, especially in the afternoons. I try to take long walks with my dog, but he gets easily distracted by the slightest noise or thing so he's all over the place, making it pretty annoying even to just walk to the other side of the area. I really hope we get a lot of work done this year to keep the staff and students informed of all types of media. As well as getting creative not only here on The Breeze, but on campus as well.
Nathan Gomez, Contributor
Hello, my name is Nathan Gomez, and I am a senior this year. I am 17, and this is my first-time doing Journalism. I am excited and hopeful that my last year here at SMHS will be the best! Some things you should know about me is that I like to watch movies. My all-time favorite movie is Avengers: Age of Ultron. I can paint, although I mainly do landscapes; I am learning to do human portraits. I also love to read comic books. Some smaller facts about me: I never had a pet, I can roller skate, my favorite color is gold, I like to collect Funko Pops, I learned how to sculpt two years ago, I like the Dragon fruit drink from Starbucks, I listen to all music genres, I have a watch collection, and my favorite animal is a horse. I am looking forward to working with the Breeze staff, and as my role of contributor, I aim to help my colleagues in accomplishing this year's goals. We at Breeze strive to inform our fellow classmates and staff about current issues, changes, or just some interesting news that is happening around school.
