This has been an outstanding year so far for Jodi Robinson, a third-grade teacher at Unionville Elementary School. She is one of only five educators in the world to win the 2016 VIF Global Educator Award. She was also named the 2016 UCPS Teacher of the Year in May.
The value of teacher assistants in the classroom was a key focus during the 24th annual banquet of the Union County Chapter of the North Carolina Association of Teacher Assistants (NCATA), held May 19 at SPCC.
