Convening of 2016 State Teachers of the Year
Even though the pay was not what she had hoped, Keana Triplett knew that teaching was the profession for her. Eleven years later as the 2015-2016 North Carolina Teacher of the Year, Keana uses what she knows about great teaching and learning to promote the education profession. After a year of traveling the state with a message of hope and inspiration for pre-service, novice, and veteran educators, Keana returned to the classroom at Watauga High School, where she is now the Digital Learning Coach.
