After many years at the elementary level teaching French, Title I reading and technology to fourth and fifth graders, including academically gifted students, and after working as testing coordinator, Ann Davis spent two years at the middle school level teaching eighth-grade English before making one more leap to high school AP and IB English and French. Davis earned National Board Certification in 1996 and recently completed the renewal process. She is thrilled to say she will now be an NBCT through 2018! As a charter officer of the Nash-Rocky Mount Council of the International Reading Association and board member of the North Carolina Reading Association, Davis has continued to initiate projects and programs to promote literacy throughout her community.
Salut, fellow Milkens! Though a number of years have passed since my exciting trip to MFF in CA, I still feel the passion for teaching that I have felt every day (and year) I've had the privilege of being in the profession. How fortunate we are to be educators! No matter what new program or curriculum initiative comes along, nothing will ever impact our day in the classroom as much as 1) our desire to be right where we are, 2) our dedicated passion for piquing the curiosity and interest of the minds in our trust, and 3) our own delight in the discovery of what we are learning along this eductional journey called teaching.
