Workshop participant: In late July, Lake Norman High Spanish teacher Helen Williams was one of nearly 50 North Carolina teachers chosen from a pool of more than 100 applicants to participate in the inaugural N.C. Association of Educators Instructional Leadership Institute. The four-day conference focused on building teacher leadership competencies around instructional issues, highlighting college and career-ready standards. Guest speakers included Sandra Albert, North Carolina director of State and District Partnerships and Professional Development for Student Achievement Partners; Keana Triplett, 2015 North Carolina Teacher of the Year; and June Atkinson, North Carolina Superintendent of Public Instruction. The institute was created by a team of teacher leaders from across the state. It was made possible by a grant from the National Education Association.
