Happy National Teachers Appreciation Week from NCCAT!

Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. We at NCCAT appreciate the opportunity to work with teachers across the state of North Carolina who are changing lives. Thank you! We are happy to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week and we are thankful for all teachers do every week. Thank you from NCCAT!

Teacher meets student she inspired into teaching at NCCAT!

Nice story from Ocracoke this week. Lori Ann Gardner, former teacher and current 9-12 lead teacher at Eastern Randolph High, attended "Coaching the Coach: Building and Empowering Teacher Capacity" in Ocracoke this week. Kelly Creed, a lead teacher at Warren Williams Elementary Alternative, was also in attendance. Neither one of them had seen each other since Kelly graduated from Eastern Randolph High in 1999 where Lori Ann was Kelly’s teacher. Lori Ann’s teaching inspired Kelly to pursue a teaching career and 20 years later they met again in the program at NCCAT.

"Immersive Digital Learning in English, History, and Science Classrooms" at NCCAT

We appreciate this group being here for "Immersive Digital Learning in English, History, and Science Classrooms" in Cullowhee. They are investigating a variety of digital tools and seeing examples of lessons for the English/language arts, history, and science classrooms. We can't wait to see the way they will inspire students to become more engaged by creating an immersive digital learning environment. Thank you for being with us!
