The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching, a recognized national leader in professional development programming for North Carolina teachers, is offering several programs the next few months taught by Canvas certified trained educator Elizabeth Joyce to help educators understand this technology tool better. The program is titled “The Canvas Connection.”

Joyce comes to NCCAT after serving four years as instructional technology specialist in Rockingham County Schools. She also attended NCCAT as a teacher. She started teaching high school English January 2008 for Rockingham County Schools, and became instructional technology specialist in August 2011.

She began teaching in North Carolina in August 2003. She has taught in a variety of grade levels including time at the high school from which she graduated—Dalton McMichael High School in Mayodan.
