Cindi Rigsbee, North Carolina State Teacher of the Year 2009

I am currently working on educator recruitment and retention initiatives with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. I work with teacher support – mentor training, beginning teacher support, and teacher recognition.

As a member of the Center for Teaching Quality’s Teacher Leaders Network, I collaborate with teachers all over the country to impact education policy, including serving as a contributing author to

Teaching 2030:What We Must Do for Our Students and Our Public Schools – Now and in the Future.

I now work with teachers instead of students, providing trainings and ensuring that beginning teachers are supported. Although I miss having my own students (my office is still in my school so I see kids all the time), working in a way that will make a difference to the profession that I love is very meaningful for me.
