RALEIGH  – Mark Jewell, currently serving his second term as vice president of the North Carolina Association of Educators (NCAE), has been elected as the association’s president. Kristy Moore, a Winston-Salem native and a full-release mentor for Durham Public Schools, has been elected to serve as vice president.

Their terms will begin tomorrow, July 1.

Jewell, a 29-year veteran educator, is a strong advocate for children and educators. He spent 10 years as a classroom teacher in West Virginia, and the last 19 years with Guilford County Schools, where he taught at Oak Hill Elementary in High Point and Murphey Traditional Academy in Greensboro. He was honored by being named Teacher of the Year at both schools. “Public education is the corner-stone of our democracy and is North Carolina’s greatest human and civil right,” said Jewell. “It must continue to be the equalizer for our state’s children and the gateway of opportunity for all in North Carolina.”

Jewell is a respected voice on public education policy, and is a champion for all stakeholders at the local, state, and national levels. He is a former president of the Guilford County Association of Educators (GCAE), and he served on board of directors for both NCAE and the National Education Association (NEA).

A graduate of Marshall University in West Virginia, Jewell earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Elementary Education. Moore has been an educator for 16 years. Moore most recently taught first grade at Glenn Elementary School in Durham prior to serving as president of the Durham Association of Educators (DAE), an affiliate of NCAE. She was also a member of the DAE board and was an association representative at her school.

She currently holds the position of NEA director on the NCAE board of directors, and has also served as Cluster 6 director. “I am extremely excited to serve NCAE members as their next vice president,” said Moore.

“NCAE has a great deal of work ahead in the fight to renew North Carolina’s commitment to public education. I look forward to working with newly elected president Mark Jewell and our leadership team to advocate for North Carolina’s education professionals and public school students.”

Moore is a graduate of UNC-Greensboro, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Birth-Kindergarten Education. She received a master’s degree in K-6 Education from Elon University and has a license in school administration from North Carolina Central University.

NCAE is the state’s largest education advocacy organization for public school employees and represents active, retired, and student members.
