His dedication to education is evidenced by his 12 year service on the UNC Board of Governors and on the Board of Trustees of Western Carolina University.

Lincoln County teacher talks about NCCAT experience

From Belinda Minnich of Asbury Academy in Lincoln County - "I first heard of NCCAT during my third year of teaching. One of my teaching mentors described her time at a session in Cullowhee. She spoke about how it reenergized her during a time in the school year when both student and teacher can be a be down- that dreaded early third 9 weeks! From that moment on, I wanted to go. NCCAT provides North Carolina's teachers great quality professional development that challenges us and allows us to grow!"

North Carolina continues to lead in National Board Certified teachers

NCCAT says a huge congratulations to North Carolina teachers for this accomplishment.

Montly Tool Talk - OneTab

When you find yourself with too many tabs, use the Google Extension, OneTab, to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once. When using the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome. You can also share lists by selecting the 'share as a web page' button.

Teachers of NCCAT - Jessica Falls

Which teacher made the most impact on your life?

"My kindergarten teacher, Ms.Stevenson made the most impact on my life. At the age of 5 i entered her classroom and immediately knew I wanted to be just like her. She was kind and compassionate yet strong. She had perfect balance of tough love and loving love. We had an assignment to draw/write about what we wanted to be when we grew up and I drew a picture of Ms.Stevenson. I knew at age of 5 I wanted to be an educator just like her. I wanted to create a classroom full of kids who are excited about learning!!"
