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.
