Event Description

Teacher of the Year is a documentary film that reveals the complex reality of teaching in the 21st century. The story focuses on Angie Scioli, an award-winning social studies teacher at Leesville Road High School in Raleigh, as she struggles to be a successful teacher, activist, mother, and wife. Teacher of the Year aims to show that teacher performance is difficult to quantify and dispels myths about teaching that may present a barrier to meaningful educational reform. One of the film's producers, Rob Phillips, received his Masters in English at NC State.

The teacher featured in the film, Angie Scioli, and Dr. Sarah E. Cannon of NC State's College of Education, will be joining us for a post-screening discussion. This screening is a collaboration between the NCSU Libraries and Public Schools First NC.
