State Superintendent delivers iPads to J.H. Rose
A teacher at J.H. Rose High School in Greenville got a surprise visit from the NC Schools Superintendent.
North Carolina State Superintendent Mark Johnson showed up with gifts for math teacher Tracey Moore's class.
Moore says more than a year ago Johnson visited her classroom and gave her a business card.
She said she decided to email the superintendent recently because she heard there was money being used to purchase iPads for classrooms. Monday Johnson arrived at the school with 100 new iPads for her classroom.
Moore was surprised in her classroom with the technology as she was teaching. She says, "Absolutely blown away. I had no idea, absolutely no idea and the best parts was the students were there to see it. So I know they thought you guys came in a little strong but they are going to be absolutely over the moon."
The superintendent says they wanted to give iPads to Moore's classroom because she leads efforts to take students to college and also says they want to do this for other classrooms across North Carolina.
