I was overjoyed to have the opportunity to bring a cultural ambassador from the Participate Learning program to my teaching staff in the fall. This teacher will serve as a role model for students and will expand their understanding of global concepts while students also focus on learning NC standards in a NC classroom. This is a great opportunity for our students!”
