Saturday, March 04, 2017

The Watson College is pleased to share a new video featuring Bobbie Cavnar, 2016-17 North Carolina Teacher of the Year. The video is part of WCE’s “It Begins with Teachers” advertising campaign introduced in May 2016 to promote the teaching profession.

Cavnar is a high school English teacher from South Point High School in Gaston County. He has visited Wilmington to deliver the keynote address at recent Watson College events including WCE’s Future Teacher Conference in October 2016, PDS’s Professional Learning Day for Beginning Teachers in November 2016 and the Watson Student Leaders’ retreat at Wrightsville Beach in January.

 “The Watson College has been fortunate to have Bobbie visit for multiple events since he was named North Carolina Teacher of the Year,” said Watson College Dean Van Dempsey. “At events where he has spoken to our students, future teachers and beginning teachers, he has been a powerful advocate for the teaching profession and an inspiration for our work as educators. His video is a testament to the importance of teachers and the role they play in our communities and for our children.”
