GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – WITN’s Teacher of the week is Ali Langley.
Langley is a first-grade teacher at Creekside Elementary School in Pitt County. She is in her fifth year of teaching, and her second year at Creekside Elementary.
She was born in Greenville and raised in Pitt County Schools.
Langley’s mother was also a school teacher. She says seeing her mother interact with students outside of the classroom inspired her to follow in her mom’s footsteps.
Now, Langley says her school, 1st grade team, and students are her motivation.
Her goal is to allow her students to explore learning through their individual learning styles and to become productive members of society.
Her nomination says, “strives to be a leader in her school, participates in school activities, and works tirelessly to provide an environment where her students feel safe and achieve their academic goals.”
Langley says her students are her “why” and the reason she loves teaching.
She’s looking forward to her oldest daughter, Hunter, starting Kindergarten next year and attending school with her!
