Family tradition at NCCAT

Many teachers who come to NCCAT for our beginning teacher programs share stories of how and why they went into education. Northern Guilford High School teacher Luke Barnes is glad after time in the business world he returned to what has been the family business.

Both Barnes mother and father were educators. When he graduated from Appalachian State in 2011 with a degree in Business Management and accepted a sales job, it appeared his direction would be different. But Luke realized teaching and coaching were his passions.
