Educators Complete Professional Development Programs

Two accomplished educators from Vance County Schools have completed participation in professional development programs held at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) in Cullowhee, N.C.

The center is a recognized national leader in professional development programming for our state’s teachers.
Fatina Bunch, a teacher at Eaton-Johnson Middle School, and Dr. Lisa Webster-Caroon, also a teacher at Eaton-Johnson Middle School, successfully completed their participation in programs at NCCAT. Bunch attended the “Developing Engagement and Understanding in Middle Grades Math” program and Webster-Caroon attended the “Project Based Learning in Digital Format” program.
Increasing teacher effectiveness is fundamental to improving public education. NCCAT provides teachers with new knowledge, skills, teaching methods, best practices and information to take back to their classrooms. NCCAT conducts a wide variety of high quality professional development for pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers.
