Teaching Matters

I created this video at the end of last school year and wanted to share this with all of you, especially since this is National Teacher Appreciation Week!

Cartwheels for Great Teachers

Monday, May 9th, 12am to Friday, May 13th, 12am


Remember we want to represent Appalachian State celebrating all the great teachers we have had in our lives. I know next week is crazy with exams, but just do a cartwheel and add to the social media links for this recruitment campaign.

LAST week of Spring Semester!

It is hard to believe classes end on Wednesday, this semester flew by so quickly! This will be the last newsletter for this school year (I know you all are sad..ha). Best wishes on exams and please remember to contact the James Center over the summer if you need anything!

The 2nd Annual Social Justice Summit was a SUCCESS!

Special thanks to the AppEd Diversity Committee for hosting 14 high school juniors for this meaningful learning opportunity.
