Perspective | Tar Heel Teachers at Home: Maureen Stover, 2020 NC Teacher of the Year

Tar Heel Teachers at Home is a weekly videocast focused on engaging North Carolinians in conversations about education. Each week, a panel of educators interview a guest(s).

In this videocast, the Tar Heel Teachers conduct an in-depth interview with Maureen Stover, who was recently selected as the 2020 Burroughs Wellcome Fund North Carolina Teacher of the Year.

We discuss a myriad of topics including returning to school buildings, remote learning, racial equity, the benefits of Cooperative Innovative High Schools, why social and emotional learning is so important, and more.
