Burlington teachers receive Master’s degrees
January 5, 2013 by Sarah
The Alamance-Burlington school system that covers Burlington, North Carolina, recently announced that several teachers in the district completed their Master’s degrees from North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro. The school system is no doubt using flyer printing and poster printing to publicize the efforts of teachers to seek ways to improve their ability to educate and serve the students in the district known to those in the local community.
The Graham Elementary School had the largest number of teachers receiving degrees, with four. The teachers were Monte Moss, Cliff Meeks, Leslie Long, and Torie Fields, The first three earned degrees in administration of schools, while Fields earned a degree in instructional technology, and has been applying her new-found knowledge to the classroom to help her students develop 21st century skills in technology. The others plan to become school administrators once the right positions become available. Ashley Barker, Carmen White, and Crystal Turner from the Altamahaw-Ossipee Elementary School also completed the degree in instructional technology along with Fields.
All the teachers began their coursework in the fall of 2010. While those in the instructional technology program were able to take all their courses online, those taking the administration courses took theirs at night. Some were taken at the University while others were taken in Graham’s Ray Street facility with which the school system was able to work out an agreement with the University.
Others completing the school administration degree in the district included Kimberly Poe from Hawfields Middle School, Jana Tasich from Western Alamance High School, and Scoot Lewis from Grove Park Elementary School.
