From first-year teachers receiving accolades for their work in the classroom to veteran educators being honored for their work in the field, NC State College of Education alumni continue to demonstrate excellence in education. Here’s a look at some of the awards they have received this year.


Recognition at the National, State and District Levels

During the past academic year, our alumni received numerous accolades, including being named:

  • National School Psychologist of the Year
  • North Carolina Principal of the Year
  • Durham Public Schools’ Teacher of the Year
  • Johnston County Public Schools’ Outstanding First-Year Teacher
  • Wake County Public School System’s Principal of the Year
