BEAUFORT – The challenges faced by today’s classroom teachers -- and how new teachers are recruited to the profession -- are the focus of the next “Our Schools” television program, which begins airing Friday on the County Channel.

Appearing with Superintendent Jeff Moss will be Nancy Ungvarsky, a science teacher and the Beaufort County School District’s Teacher of the Year; Angela Bellantone, a literacy coach and Bluffton Middle School’s Teacher of the Year; and Merriam Browne, a prekindergarten teacher and St. Helena Elementary School’s Teacher of the Year.

“Our Schools” is a partnership between the school district and the County Channel.

Beginning Friday, Feb. 2, the new edition of “Our Schools” will air four times weekly: at 11:30 a.m. Mondays, 9 p.m. Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m. Thursdays and 12:30 p.m. Saturdays.  The broadcast will air on local cable networks: Comcast’s Channel 2, Hargray’s channels 9 and 113, and Spectrum Channel 63.  The show also will air at those times on the County Channel’s website.

In addition, the show will be archived and can be watched any time at the same link.
