NCCAT alumn brings world's fair to Rowan County Early College Students

We are glad to see the article below about the work of NCCAT alum Theresa Pierce, who has been to NCCAT four times, and is a former Phil Kirk Honored Education Scholarship recipient.

 

From the article ...

 

"SALISBURY — Friday, Dec. 2 was unusually quiet in the Hanford-Dole Elementary library — until the World’s Fair arrived.

 

It’s the fifth year Rowan County Early College students have presented this multicultural event to local elementary schools. Freshmen begin researching their country of choice in world history, taught by Theresa Pierce. During the semester they plan tri-fold boards, collect authentic artifacts, decide what food will represent their countries and create costumes.

 

After presenting to the community the evening before, the freshmen brought their show on the road to the Hanford-Dole library. They were ready with puppet shows, music, dancing and crafts for the elementary students. “London Bridge is falling down” was particularly popular."

Pierce said this recently to us about her time at NCCAT: "NCCAT has been an ongoing part of my teaching journey and I believe one of the reasons I chose to remain in the profession. Thank you."

 

Thank you Theresa for all you do!
