Join us for a conversation with North Carolina 2020 Burroughs Wellcome Fund Teacher of the Year and finalist for National Teacher of the Year, Maureen Stover. Maureen taught biology, earth and environmental science, and was active in the advancement via individual determination (AVID) program at Cumberland International Early College High School in Fayetteville.
