Rochelle is one of only 26 teachers statewide to receive the Teacher of the Week designation this school year. She was recognized on air during the radio broadcast of a University of North Carolina basketball game on Nov. 22 and will be recognized on the Bright Ideas website at www.NCBrightIdeas.com from Jan. 26-Feb 1. She, along with the 25 other Tar Heel Teacher of the Week honorees, will also receive a plaque commemorating their achievement and tickets to a UNC basketball game.
