The 2022 North Carolina Teacher of the Year paid a visit to Buncombe County Schools last week. Eugenia Floyd, who is a 4th-grade teacher in Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, toured Estes Elementary and Valley Springs Middle School. She met faculty and staff members and observed several classes, including a science class at Valley Springs where students were experimenting with dry ice!

As the North Carolina Teacher of the Year, Ms. Floyd will spend this year touring schools across the state. She says becoming the state Teacher of the Year has been a humbling experience. She adds that she's grateful for the opportunity to meet teachers and administrators across the state and see firsthand all of the hard work and teamwork that educators are doing to benefit students.

"One of the things about being in the field of education is you are not alone in this work," said Ms. Floyd. "I worked closely with my PLC (Professional Learning Community) when I was in the classroom. The same is true this year as I travel. I am one voice, but there are so many voices to be heard. I work with our regional and district Teachers of the Year in order to build a network of voices that can speak to what's happening in our schools!"

She adds that it is a priority for her to lift up and highlight all of the great things happening in our public schools as we continue recovering and thriving after the pandemic disruptions from the last 18 months. Celebrating Public Education with Many Voices
