Teachers of NCCAT - Regina DeCristofaro Chatham Middle School Chatham County

Growing up in the 60s and 70s had its good points and bad. I remember summers where my mom would tell me to go out and play and be home before the streetlights came on at night. We would be gone all day, no cell phones, parents knew we were safe and we would play outside all day long. We did not have video games, we made up games to play with our friends and occupied ourselves. Those are the good memories.

Where do you get your best ideas?  What inspires you?

My best ideas come from colleagues, especially fellow NCCAT participants. All great ideas come from others... really! When I visit NCCAT, everyone discusses their best. Their best lessons, techniques, etc. are the answers to my questions. Being in that environment, you are given the time to reflect and decide how that can be used in your room.

The Physically Active Academic Classroom program at NCCAT

How many of us have endured the drudgery of the “sit ‘n’ git” workshop and sworn silently that we would never inflict the same fate on our students? This promise represents not only good humor, but also good pedagogy. A wealth of research supports the hypothesis that physical activity can boost comprehension, retention, and self-regulation in students of all achievement levels.
