Edcamp WNC will take place on the beautiful Cullowhee campus of the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching
NCCAT’s mission is to keep high-quality teachers in the classroom, advancing teaching beyond that of a simple job to an art form and a profession. By renewing their love for teaching, and improving the quality and enthusiasm of the teachers themselves, NCCAT ultimately improves student engagement in learning and academic achievement.
NCCAT’s vision is to help North Carolina teachers grow in knowledge, skills, compassion, and professionalism so that every student becomes engaged, self-motivated, and successful.
NCCAT helps to retain the most caring, highly qualified, and skilled teachers necessary to positively impact the quality of public education in North Carolina. Dedicated to enriching the professional lives of our state’s public school teachers, NCCAT provides support for the entire spectrum of their teaching career.
