The WRAL Teacher of the Week is Helen Pettiford, a science teacher at Sanderson High School. You may remember Pettiford who was a 2012 Wake County Teacher of the Year finalist.
WRAL features one teacher every week on its morning and noon newscasts, from the 50 or so counties they serve. A WRAL news reporter visits the teacher’s classroom, surprising her with a token of WRAL’s appreciation for a job well done, and sitting down with that teacher for 10 minutes to talk about the profession, and their experiences.
