Nancy LaBarge from Northside High School in Beaufort County is the WITN Teacher of the Week for May 22, 2013.

Nancy has been teaching for 15 years and has spent her entire career in Beaufort County Schools. She teaches math to students at Northside, including algebra and geometry. She is also involved in several extra-curricular activities, including being the first responder for the football team and is the stage manager for the theater and music programs.

"I have a strong passion for math and believe everyone can enjoy math, if shown how," Nancy writes. "Math does not have to be a dreaded subject. I wish to instill in all whom I teach the love of math I hold."

Nancy says she decided to become a teacher because she has faced learning disabilities and wants to make sure children who also have learning disabilities see that they can be successful in school.
