CMS Superintendent Peter Gorman believes that “teachers are the most important school-based factor in academic success.” To help that chance of success in the Charlotte region, area educators are embarking on a new endeavor to help public school teachers strengthen their professional development and increase their effectiveness in the classroom. The Charlotte Teachers Institute is the first of its kind in North Carolina and one of only a handful around the U.S. CTI has been formed as a partnership between UNC Charlotte, CMS and Davidson College that offers seminars on subjects that the teachers have chosen. We’ll find out how the project came to the region and what leaders hope will come from it.
