TEACHER OF THE YEAR is a documentary film that reveals the complex reality of teaching in the 21st century and explores the forces that influence a teacher's performance for the competing needs of audiences made up of students, parents, administrators, other teachers, politicians, and the public at large. Learn more at this link:

​The film emphasizes Angela Panel Sciolii's (Wake County Teacher Leesville High) work as a performer for these varied audiences, and we document her struggles and triumphs to be a successful teacher, activist, mother, and wife. The film contends with the view of teachers shaped by seductive media experiences, which reduce teachers to the simplistic dichotomy of good or bad. The film demonstrates that teacher performance is difficult to quantify and dispels myths about teaching that may present a barrier to meaningful educational reform. FREE TO THE PUBLIC. Discussion with audience after the film.

The teacher featured in the film, Angie Scioli, the film's producer, NC State alumnus Rob Phillips, and Dr. Sarah E. Cannon of NC State's College of Education, will be joining us for a post-screening discussion. This screening is a collaboration between the NCSU Libraries and Public Schools First NC.
