Marlow Artis is the Creator and Chief Content Purveyor for Tar Heel Teachers, which encompasses a website, an educational panel talk show, a videocast: Tar Heel Teachers at Home, and an educational travel series: Tar Heel Teachers on the Road. In addition to moderating and executive producing these media platforms, he happily served for five years as a sixth grade English/Language Arts teacher. He was a member of the NC Governor’s Teacher Network, placed as the First Runner-Up in the Cumberland County Schools Teacher of the Year Competition (after being named the Teacher of the Year for South View Middle and the South View Attendance Area), and was an Emerging Leader for NCPDK. He was also featured as one of the Fayetteville Observer’s 40 Under 40 in 2015.

He served for two and a half years as the Academic Support Specialist with Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools’ prestigious Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate Program where he leveraged experiential learning to close opportunity gaps. He was a NC Teacher Voice Fellow with the Hope Street Group from 2016 until 2018. For two years, he enjoyed the rewarding career challenge of being the Inaugural Upward Bound Director for Sampson County Schools (recipient of a $1.3 Million Dollar Department of Education Federal Grant) where he worked diligently to prepare students for the collegiate level through a year-round comprehensive college readiness framework. He is a proud graduate of both UNC-Chapel Hill, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies, and UNC-Wilmington, where he received a Master of School Administration. As a strong believer in the transformative power of education, Artis is currently pursuing an executive doctorate in educational leadership from Western Carolina University. After becoming Dr. Artis in 2021, he plans to attend law school at North Carolina Central University to study educational law.

He is now focused on consulting and delivering high quality professional development to schools and districts across the state after serving North Carolina’s students and teachers in urban, suburban, and rural systems. Additionally, he is prepping a forthcoming children’s book: I’ll Pass on Mrs. Pink’s Class about the transition from elementary to middle school.
