Buncombe County Early College (BCEC) English teacher Anneliese Shreve is a regional winner and state finalist for the title of 2022 North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) Prudential NC Beginning Teacher of the Year (BTOY).

Ms. Shreve and 26 other finalists have been notified and will take part in an NCCAT professional development week in February, where the overall winner will be announced. The winning teacher will receive a $5,000 cash prize, participation in a GoGlobal NC trip in 2023, and instructional supply funds for their school. The goal of the recognition is to honor and retain excellent beginning teachers and help NCCAT build relationships with schools and school districts in the state, according to the NCCAT website.

“I feel honored to be representing the Buncombe County Early College, our district, and the western region of North Carolina in the BTOY finals,” Ms. Shreve said. “I look forward to meeting and working with the other finalists from around the state. Being a part of this process has been and continues to be a great learning opportunity for me. I believe that building relationships is the most important aspect of teaching. The relationships that I have built with my students, their parents, my mentors, and colleagues have changed my life and empowered my teaching.”

On Sept. 29, Buncombe County Schools (BCS) administrators surprised Ms. Shreve with flowers and balloons as they announced she was the BCS Beginning Teacher of the Year and a state nominee. On a Facebook Live video, students and BCEC Principal Dr. Donna Lanahan praised Ms. Shreve for her focus on equity, accessibility, and engagement.

“Our school is so proud that Anneliese is moving forward as a finalist for the Beginning Teacher of the Year,” Dr. Lanahan said. “She is an exceptional educator who represents the best of teacher leadership and professionalism.”

NCCAT will announce the overall winner on Feb. 17, 2022.
