SHALLOTTE, N.C. – The Brunswick County Association of REALTORS® stepped up to support local teachers by assisting the Brunswick County School System with its first-in-the-state Teacher Academy. BCAR donated multiple gift cards that were provided to teachers as door prizes.
"Our members recognize the tremendous impact teachers have on the future of our community,” said Ben Styers, 2017 BCAR President. “Families who purchase homes in Brunswick County want to know that their children will be taught by qualified, well-prepared teachers. We were honored to support our dedicated teachers in this way."
Brunswick County Schools’ Teacher Academy is a week-long professional development program held at the beginning of August. The Teacher Academy is open to all teachers in the district and focuses on education, motivation and fellowship for teachers as they prepare for the school year. The week is dedicated to enhancing lesson plans, increasing communication throughout the school district and reviewing curriculum.
