NC Geographic Alliance: Geography ; from the mountains to the sea witten beside map of North CarolinaCongratulations to Douglas Byrd Middle School (DBMS) Science teacher, Mrs. Talicia Smith, and Librarian, Mrs. Kristy Sartain, for winning a North Carolina Geographic Alliance Geo-Inquiry Institute Fellowship.

Using both a geographic perspective and the Geo-Inquiry Process, students begin to connect complex components, see patterns, and make connections that change their communities.
