pam     Pamela Perry of Vance County Middle School


Pamela Perry, a member of the faculty at Vance County Middle School, has been selected to participate in the prestigious 2019 Energy Literacy Fellows Program for this year through the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Institute for the Environment.


Perry begins her participation in this statewide program with fellow educators in early March. As an Energy Literacy Fellow, she will receive benefits including:

  • access to current science content related to emerging energy issues and technologies
  • resources to support classroom integration of content
  • over $250 worth of instructional materials to support hands-on STEM investigations
  • access to a peer learning network including 2017 and 2018 Fellows
  • credit towards CEUs and the N.C. EE Certification Program
  • support for sharing energy related STEM instructional strategies and successes with other teaching professionals at the district, regional, state and national levels


Perry will be able to participate in lots of on-site professional development sessions and several virtual sessions with educational colleagues across the state.


"I'm so excited to be chosen to participate in this program," said Perry, who will be among the third cohort for the Fellows Program. "I see this as a great opportunity to use my training as a teacher in science and math to network with other educators and to bring back strategies and practices that will benefit both my students and my colleagues. Since we have our zSpace and MakerSpace labs now here at the school, I think this experience will be a wonderful way to learn more about how we can use these innovations in our everyday instruction."
