North Carolina's Teacher Of The Year


9:00 Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Some good news for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. This year, CMS produced the North Carolina Teacher of the Year – James Ford, who teaches history at Garinger High School. Ford has been traveling the state as an ambassador for its 95,000 teachers. As the first CMS teacher to hold the title since 1970, and at a time when negativity surrounds education, James Ford shares his thoughts on teaching and the trials faced by teachers.
