Bears Go Big

UNC Bears go out into the world to do BIG and significant work. Meet Christina Randle, who earned her UNC bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Secondary Teaching in 2003 and was named Colorado Teacher of the Year in 2018. She was also last year's Future Teacher Conference keynote speaker.

Teaching is so much more than just delivering content to the kids.
