On Thursday, August 25, three North Carolina teachers and members of the CTQ community were featured guests on “Education Talk Radio,” a live radio broadcast hosted by Larry Jacobs.
- Karyn Dickerson, 2013-2014 North Carolina Teacher of the Year, NBCT and AP/IB Coordinator at Grimsley High School (Greensboro, NC)
- Ben Owens, CTQ blogger, Virtual Community Organizer, former corporate engineer and now physics and math teacher at Tri-County Early College High School (Murphy, NC)
- Joanna Schimizzi, NBCT and teacher at North Carolina Virtual Public Schools (Charlotte, NC)
These teachers discussed a two-month study they recently took part in that explored teacher career pathways and professional compensation recommendations that resulted in a newly-released paper.
The paper—Transforming teachers’ careers and compensation in North Carolina: A new vision from some of our state’s best teachers—identifies recommendations for teacher compensation and outlines a vision for advancing the teaching profession that all students deserve.
