Tar Heel Teachers at Home is a weekly interview series focused on engaging North Carolinians in conversations about education. Each week, a panel of educators interview a guest(s).
In this episode, the Tar Heel Teachers chat with three-time North Carolina Superintendent of the Year Dr. Jim Causby. He shares stories from his 54-year career as an educator in North Carolina, including his experiences as a teacher, school administrator, and superintendent (Swain County Schools, Polk County Schools, and Johnston County Public Schools).
He discusses how Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is navigating COVID-19 and why the district quickly decided to implement remote learning for the entire first semester.
