Two educators from the Roanoke Valley have been named to the Governor's Teacher Cabinet.
Betsy Hall, a G.W. Carver Elementary School fourth grade teacher, and Catherine Moretz, who teaches third grade at Oak Grove Elementary School, have been named to the cabinet.
The group is scheduled to meet for the first time later this month and is expected to submit initial recommendations by Nov. 15.
According to a news release from Gov. Bob McDonnell's office, the cabinet is tasked with, among other things, recommending strategies for closing the achievement gap; improving the K-12 education, higher education and workforce collaboration; and for greater parent and community engagement.
"Our teachers know what works and what doesn't," McDonnell said in a statement. "Through the creation of the Teachers Cabinet we will be able to hear directly from them, and Virginia's public school system will be stronger because of their advice and input."
