My Teacher

WUNC is traveling the state, listening to students interview their teachers. Our goal is to gain some new insights into what it takes to be a teacher in North Carolina. Do you have a special story about a teacher? Tell us! Also, here's how to record your own My Teacher interview.

WUNC is in the midst of a yearlong examination of what it's like to be an educator, called the North Carolina Teacher Project. This week, we're exploring what it takes to make a connection in the classroom by asking students to interview their teachers.

Caleb Crawley is a senior at Northern High School in Durham, where Matthew Hunt is serving his first year as principal.  Mr. Hunt has walked the halls of Northern High for several years as an administrator, but he played basketball in the Netherlands long before he made his way to a classroom.

My Teacher is a new initiative from North Carolina Public Radio - WUNC. We're traveling the state, finding teachers and students to tell their stories. You don't have to wait for us to show up to record and submit your story, though.

You could write to us, and tell us a story about your teacher. (Put 'My Teacher' in the subject line.) Or, you could record the conversation yourself with your smartphone!

Simply make an appointment with your teacher.
