"As a former principal, I found this conference to be the zenith of professional staff development and recognition for teacher assistants and I encourage attendance for all TA's. I also made it one of the few annual conferences for attendance on my calendar as well. I was never disappointed and championed many of the ideas for effective change within our school."
The Honorable Mary S. Accor
Former Cleveland County Commissioner
Chair of the NC Association of County Commissioners
"I had a wonderful experience at the NCATA conference in 2013. I attended the closing banquet and the energy in the room was incredible. Teacher assistants were clearly proud of their profession and proud of the students and school systems they serve. Having the opportunity to celebrate the many accomplishments of our teacher assistants state wide with NCATA was rejuvenating and refreshing. It's great to be around so much positive energy and so many dedicated professionals."
