Hands clapping for educators

Thank An Educator

Alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends have been sharing stories about the educators who changed their lives as part of our Thank An Educator movement.

We asked you to share your stories about the educators who made a difference in your life and how they are transforming lives, schools and communities across North Carolina, the nation and the world.

"Mrs. Mason made learning fun and each day was an adventure. . . .I now strive to make my classroom as fun and inviting as Mrs. Mason’s and hope that my students also develop a love of learning as I did in her class."

-Olivia Jordan '15MED

"During a time where my home life was not stable, [Mr. Blendiger] stood strong and constant. He is one of the biggest reasons I became an educator because what he did for me is something I strive to do for others."
