NCCAT 2024 Empower NC Beginning Teacher of the Year Award in Cullowhee tonight

Teachers arrive at NCCAT for BTOY 2024 week.

Twenty-seven educators from across North Carolina have arrived at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) 2024 Empower NC Beginning Teacher of the Year Award for a week of professional development and an evening to honor the teaching profession.

The NCCAT 2024 Empower NC Beginning Teacher of the Year Award process was developed to honor beginning teachers and to retain teachers who show promise as excellent teachers and education leaders in North Carolina public schools and public charter schools. One of these talented educators will be named the 2024 NCCAT Empower NC Beginning Teacher of the Year after being selected by a panel of judges. They will participate in a week for professional development at NCCAT February 12-16, 2024. The award will be presented on February 15, 2024, at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on the campus of Western Carolina University in Cullowhee.

Follow along this week on NCCAT social media channels. The ceremony Thursday will be livestreamed at starting around 7:15 p.m.

The collaboration, great conversations and knowledge the next few days of professional development will provide is just like what all North Carolina teachers can experience at NCCAT, have come to their schools, or experience online. Find out more about experiencing NCCAT professional development here at Lodging, meals, and materials are free for residential professional learning. Our summer schedule is coming later this month!
