You can make NCCAT possible for teachers!

At first, Joshua Gaskill was unsure that he even wanted to be a teacher. After studying in the fields of engineering and medicine, both of which he found unfulfilling, Joshua decided to make teaching his chosen profession. Today he teaches in a classroom in Pamlico County Schools where he once was a student himself. In 2014, Joshua attended an NCCAT seminar as the recipient of the George R. Brinson Honored Educatior Scholarship.

Help NCCAT help teachers

Thanks to your support, NCCAT alumni continue to be more effective teachers and, subsequently, their students are better prepared for life.

Take for instance, NCCAT alumna, Virginia Spaventa, who teaches ESL students at Frank Morgan Elementary in Winston-Salem/Forsyth Schools. She had a challenge:

- Her student population needed help in accessing homework. She decided to attend the NCCAT seminar, Catching up with your Students: Digital Learning

- She learned to create electronic homework to adapt classroom assignments into an easy-to-use format for mobile phones
