Teacher Of The Week

Teacher of the Week: Karen Braxton

Karen Braxton has been hailed as a survivor, leader, fighter, teacher and hero.  As a teacher at Cape Fear Middle School, however she says she is none of those things.

Teacher of the Week: Trina Jones

As a relatively new teacher at Shallotte Middle School Trina Jones was surprised to find out she won was the first Teacher of the Week of 2018.  Winning, she says, makes her feel like "the kids must really hear what I'm saying and know I love them."

Teacher of the Week: Robert Parker

Teacher of the Week: Cat Thomas

The fun never ends in the drama class of Cat Thomas at North Brunswick High School.

Teacher of the Week: Austin Adams

Teacher of the Week: Kate Diehl

Kate Diehl is a one-of-a-kind teacher who urges her students to be global citizens, stand up for social injustices, be themselves, and she still has time to be a fan (and quote) the rapper Tupac Shakur. "The advice I hope to leave all my students," she says, "is from the great Tupac who said 'be the rose that grew from concrete when no one else cared.'"

Teacher of the Week: Jake Wentzek

From band, jazz band and chorus to symphonic, concert and marching band, Jake Wentzek does it all at Topsail High School.

Teacher of the week: Ashley Freeman

After suffering the loss of her husband, Ashley Freeman returned to work at Bolivia Elementary supported by her school family.
