October 5, 2017
PNC Arena, Raleigh, NC
Antoinette Daye--Career Development Coordinator at Jordan High School and former classroom teacher--represented Durham Public Schools' teachers as a participant in the Teachers@Work Program during the North Carolina Business Committee for Education (NCBCE) Annual Meeting with Governor Roy Cooper. NCBCE's Teachers@Work® initiative connects educators to businesses for an experiential learning opportunity about employable workforce skills that can be transferred to the classroom environment.
The Teachers@Work Initiative is a partnership between NCBCE and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. The program will include at least 45 business and teacher partnerships.
Ms. Daye was partnered with Participate this summer where she spent an entire week learning the day to day operation of the business. Participate (formerly VIF) supports teachers, school leaders and districts in the endeavor of developing professional development, and language acquisition through a cultural exchange program.
