Former Teacher of the Year resigns after DWI charge


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A former New Hanover County Teacher of the Year who was recently charged with a DWI has resigned.

A spokewoman for New Hanover County Schools says Meredeth Kokoski left the job in November.

In October, Kokoski was arrested and charged with DWI after flipping her car on Orange Street in Wilmington.

She was also suspended from teaching after an investigation was launched into alleged inappropriate relations with two students dating back to 2016.

Kokoski was New Hanover County’s Teacher of the Year in 2014.
