Position: STEM teacher at Perquimans County Middle School

What the school division said about this Excellent Educator: Linae Jacox is one of a kind. She has built our STEM program from the ground up for the past five years. Our students want to be in her class because she delivers hands-on learning and creates lifelong relationships. If you visit her classroom, you will see students building, creating, and developing. Sometimes they are coding, building rockets, conducting crime scene investigations, or engineering a new design concept. Her classroom is exceptional! Come check her out.
