NCTIES is very excited to launch our new special interest groups for the state of NC. These groups are intended to bring educators together in order to create, collaborate, and share resources and conversations. We want this to be all you want or need it to be! As we are just getting started, your thoughts are very important and we want your voice in this project. Please let us know what we can provide in these groups so that they are useful to you.

To participate, please join our Ning Social Network
