EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.


We are celebrating national school principals’ day tomorrow, Saturday, May 1. This evening we will be publishing articles about school leaders, and we hope you will post a photo of your favorite principal on Twitter or Facebook to help us say thank you. To our school leaders, we see your leadership and public service, and especially this year, we honor your commitment to our students, our state, and our future.

Next week is national Teacher Appreciation Week. We’ve got podcasts and more so stay tuned.

From Alli, here are your podcasts for the weekend:

Beginning Teacher Wednesdays – The Modern Mentor (Dr. Matthew X. Joseph)

Host Jen Hawkins sits down with Dr. Matthew X. Joseph to discuss his experiences as a beginning teacher, the importance of having a strong mentor relationship in the beginning years of teaching, and the greatest gifts that a mentor can give a beginning teacher.

Ed Leader – MTSS: A Framework for School Improvement with BriAnne Hall and Heather Boston

For this episode, Dr. Jackson is joined by two outstanding EdLeaders who are making a difference serving and supporting schools and school systems in their implementation of Multi-tier Systems of Support.

First in Future – Dr. Karrie Dixon and Dr. Kuldeep Rawat of Elizabeth City State University

The Institute for Emerging Issues, in a four part series, will be focusing on the state’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities – a group of 10 colleges and universities stretching across the state formed to ensure that African Americans had access to higher education. This episode is with President Dr. Karrie Dixon and Dr. Kuldeep Rawat of Elizabeth City State University.
