Congratulations! We are proud of you!
Debbie Rowles, our Curriculum Coach; Ashley Wilkinson, our Media and Technology Facilitator and Jennifer Snyder Crawford, our STEM coach earned their National Geographic Educator Certification. According to National Geographic they are the first and only certified educators through their program in Stanly County!
"National Geographic Educator Certification is a free professional development program that recognizes pre-K through 12 formal and informal educators committed to inspiring the next generation of explorers, conservationists, and changemakers. These educators are part of a powerful movement to make the world a better place by empowering students to be informed decision-makers equipped to solve meaningful challenges in their communities and beyond. Don’t just teach students about the world—teach them how to change it."
All three worked throughout the spring to achieve this goal and were required to submit recorded video lessons on the content of their choice.
