NHCS Teacher Receives Outstanding Secondary Math Teacher Award

Taylor SpearTaylor Spear, math teacher at Isaac Bear Early College High School, received this year’s Outstanding Secondary Mathematics Teacher Award from the North Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCCTM).

“This honor is well deserved,” said Principal Philip Sutton. “Mr. Spear is one of those teachers who go above and beyond in and out of the classroom to ensure student engagement and learning.”

In 2014, principals of North Carolina schools were encouraged to nominate the teacher they believe does the most effective job teaching mathematics in their school. From those nominated, each Local Education Agency selected one teacher to represent the best in mathematics teaching from the entire system.

Mr. Spear will receive one year's membership in the NCCTM, recognition at their annual meeting in Greensboro in October and a special memento of the occasion.
