Congratulations to Mrs. Priscilla Dunn!
Governor's Teacher Network
   Governor's Teacher Network selected 450 teachers across North Carolina to develop lessons or conduct action research within their classrooms and share results across the state.  Mrs. Dunn was selected to conduct action research in the area of vocabulary instruction and impacts on learning. She will share her research and results with staff of Burnsville Elementary, Yancey County Schools and school systems across the state of North Carolina. For this work, Mrs. Dunn will be awarded $10,000.
