@ThatMathLady keeps learning going on Twitter

Amanda Casto, a teacher at Druid Hills Academy in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, might be better known as that @ThatMathLady to educators on Twitter.

Once Casto joined Twitter, there was no turning back as she found a great way to connect with other teachers and keep learning going.

"It has been amazing to me how many connections I've made and people I've been able to interact with because of Twitter," Casto said. "It is something that grew organically and put me in touch with ideas and educators that have been so helpful in my career as an educator."

NCCAT alumnus featured in article

We were excited to read about NCCAT alumnus Joshua Gaskill in this recent article from the New Bern Journal Sun. The story begins ...

"Students in Joshua Gaskill’s history class find out quickly that his plan is about more than just memorizing dates and events.

He wants them to know the story behind the historical line scores and to give thought to how events even hundreds of years ago relate to today’s world.

His own story is compelling – a 2003 Pamlico graduate who looked at engineering and medicine before settling on a career as an educator.

Pamlico County teacher on time with NCCAT

The opportunity to attend the Holocaust Seminar through the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching was truly a life changing experience. As a high school history teacher, I thought I knew a great deal about the Holocaust and the events surrounding this historical atrocity. However, after visiting the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., I found out that there was so much I did not know.

We were happy to read a recent story by the Wilmington StarNews welcoming home Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Adam Peterson. It was great to see this man who serves our country welcomed home by his daughter Aleeya Sampson. We were not surprised to see NCCAT alumna Beverly Ladd helped with setting this reunion up at Pine Valley Elementary School.

How have you used time at NCCAT in the classroom?

It is always a great honor to hear how educators take what they've worked on here at NCCAT back into classrooms across the state of North Carolina. We hear these stories each day and can't get enough of them honestly.

NCCAT alumnus working on program to expand teacher professional development

A good friend and alumnus of NCCAT Ben Owens, a physics and mathematics teacher at Tri-County Early College High School in Cherokee County and National Teacher Fellow with The Hope Street Group, is working on an interesting program to expand in-classroom, teacher-to-teacher professional development.

The program currently has people in four districts participating in the pilot: Swain County, Buncombe County, McDowell County and Cherokee County. We are hoping to have a project kickoff at NCCAT in Cullowhe in early December. We'll keep you posted.
