MESSAGES 2014 :: MARCH 31, 2014

Governor's Teacher Network Informational Webinars, April 1 and 3

Good Afternoon!

Good teaching motivates students to learn. Good teachers inspire each other when they share their most innovative and creative practices.
With this in mind, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, in partnership with the NC Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) has established the Governor's Teacher Network (GTN). This initiative, funded by the state's Race to the Top grant, will provide a statewide platform for teachers to share their best work around instruction and professional development and help advance Race to the Top (RttT) funded educational remodeling efforts across the state.

Through the GTN, approximately 450 outstanding teachers from across North Carolina will be selected to serve for one year as instructional and professional development experts and facilitators.

To answer questions and provide assistance for teachers who are interested in this initiative, as well as for the principals who will be asked to endorse them, the NCDPI will host GTN Informational Webinars on Tuesday and Thursday of this week. Theresa Perry, who coordinates the GTN, Race to the Top Director Adam Levinson, and other NCDPI officials, will be on hand to offer detailed information about this initiative and to take your questions.

Webinars for principals will be held from 1:30 to 3 pm on both days.

Webinars for teachers will be held from 3:30 to 5 pm on Tuesday and 4 to 5:30 pm on Thursday.
