Teacher and World Languages department chair, Rocky Mount High School

Rocky Mount, North Carolina

After many years at the elementary level teaching French, Title I reading and technology to fourth and fifth graders, including academically gifted students, and after working as testing coordinator, Ann Davis spent two years at the middle school level teaching eighth-grade English before making one more leap to high school AP and IB English and French.

Davis earned National Board Certification in 1996 and recently completed the renewal process. She is thrilled to say she will now be an NBCT through 2018! Davis is also a winner of the prestigious Milken Educator Award.

As a charter officer of the Nash-Rocky Mount Council of the International Reading Association and board member of the North Carolina Reading Association, Davis has continued to initiate projects and programs to promote literacy throughout her community.
