first_imgNEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) – Parents and students ending the 2017-2018 school year still wait what 2019 holds for the school redistricting. That’s because school board members have to make a decision to re-district.A decision they do not seem to be any closer to after another workshop Monday.- Advertisement – “Do you have an issue with current capacity? And the answer to that is yes you do,” said school superintendent Dr. Tim Markley to the board beginning their workshop.The school board tabled a decision on redistricting High Schools in February and delayed it to happen in 2019.“With what we were looking at with the variables and with the exemption of senior privilege, junior privilege, sibling privilege, we really weren’t moving that many students,” said School Board vice chair Jeanette Nichols.Related Article: Elementary students rev up for NASCAR-inspired academic skills competitionNichols says this workshop placed more information and capacity projections in front of the board. Superintendent Markley also using it to send a clear message: a decision needs to come soon.“We need to do something at the middle school,” said Dr. Markley. “I think we’ve agreed that we generally will wait, we’ve got construction so we’ve got to do construction before we start doing that.”That construction will put more student in mobile units. Markely reported there are nearly 80 units used county-wide that equal the capacity of two schools. He added that several of them date back to the late 1960’s. He said the average life of all of them is roughly 20 years.Nichols hopes come their next workshop, parents will have the answers they need.“These parents need to know as soon as, they need to know a timeline of, we know when we’re going to have to redistrict for the elementary schools, but what are we going to do for the middle school and high school?”Dr. Markley requested the board set a timeline at their May workshop.last_img read more

Teacher of the Week shares her secret to relating with students

first_imgLELAND, NC (WWAY) — In some schools, disciplinary problems can inhibit learning, but in this week’s Teacher of the Week, WWAY’s Jeff Rivenbark visited a Brunswick County School where there’s a strong emphasis on “character building” and little room for disruptive behavior.Read, spell, read, is a learning exercise Erin Brangan uses regularly to engage her seventh-grade students in a review of their vocabulary.- Advertisement – It won’t take long for you to see the students in her class are serious about learning. “Character building” is a key component to learning at The Roger Bacon Academy Day School Middle School.“I’m a strong believer that discipline comes first and academics will fall into place,” said Brangan.After earning degrees from Saint Joseph’s University and Long Island University, Brangan landed her first teaching job at The Roger Bacon Academy Day School Middle School where she’s been for the last seven years.Related Article: ‘Teacher of the Week’ uses mousetraps to teach scienceThe person who nominated Brangan noted her unique ability to relate with students.“Honestly, I think its because I was a struggling student myself,” Brangan said. “I think I am able to relate more and I have become more of a rapport builder with my students to help them through the tough times within middle school so they are able to focus on their schoolwork more.”If her students are down emotionally or having a bad day, she offers this advice.“Leave all negativity at the door,” she said. “Be positive. Be happy. We’re going to work to the best of our ability to the best we can and we’re going to be successful, together.”Brangan prides herself on connecting with students on a personal level.“I want to make sure they are entering a safe classroom, that they are able to come to me and I will be their therapist, I will be their advocate, I will be their mentor,” she said. “So I think having that personal relationship with students you can really get that engagement they need within academics.”Perhaps the one educator who inspired Brangan’s teaching style the most was her high school Spanish teacher, Toby Marienfield.“It’s that rapport that I had with her and I had a tough time in high school and it was really–she was someone I could really open up to. So, I try to bring that in with my students,” Brangan said.“She loves her kids and understands the high expectations that our school holds and she believes in them,” said RBA Charlotte Day School Middle School Assistant Headmaster Rosina Walton. “She understands if she wants the best for her kids is to start by understanding them and really having that connection with them.”So how does it feel to be WWAY and Mattress & Furniture Liquidators’ Teacher of the Week?“Its nice to be recognized and I’m truly, truly so honored,” Brangan said. “So, Thank you.”Here’s how to nominate a teacher you know who is making an impact in the classroom.last_img read more
