RALEIGH, N.C. – Upon the nomination of Senator Chuck Edwards (R-Henderson), Ms. Julie L. Hart has been appointed to the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) Board of Trustees by the NC General Assembly effective July 1, 2020. HB 1041, which passed 46 to 0, confirmed her appointment with a term expiring on June 30, 2024.

“Julie’s passion for teaching and aspiration to help young teachers will prove invaluable to prepare new teachers entering the profession,” said Sen. Edwards. “Not only is she actively involved in the community, but as a teacher, she is well versed in the daily life of being in school and the teaching of North Carolina students. As a new teacher just out of college, her understanding of changes that need to be made will undoubtedly lead to new and better ideas. Our district must be represented on state boards and commissions. I know Julie will work hard for our students and represent District 48 well.”

Julie Hart teaches English and American History at North Henderson High School in Hendersonville, NC. She just completed her first year as a teacher. Ms. Hart graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature with a Teacher Licensure. While at UNC Asheville, she served as a Teacher Ambassador, educating high school students about college, specifically, about the Education Department. In April of 2019, Ms. Hart received the Jeff Rackham Award for being the strongest graduating literature-teacher licensure student. In the same month, Ms. Hart was one of the nominees to be UNCA’s Student Teacher of the Year. Furthermore, she has served in various volunteer positions working for numerous political campaigns and other organizations in the community.

Julie Hart said, “Since graduating college, I knew I could find a way to help other young teachers better prepare themselves for their careers. I can do that from my new position with NCAT. I thank Senator Edwards for this prestigious appointment and the opportunity to make a greater difference.”
