North Carolina

Wendi Pillars, NBCT, has been teaching for 23 years in grades K-12 both overseas and stateside, in military and civilian contexts. She currently teaches at Jordan-Matthews High School in Siler City, North Carolina, and online for National Geographic. She is the author of Visual Note-Taking for Educators: A Teacher's Guide to Student Creativity, and is a regular contributor to EdWeek and other educational platforms. Obsessively curious, she is a 2018 PolarTREC educator, 2017 Grosvenor Teacher Fellow, 2016 State Department Global Classroom Fellow, and freelance Graphic Recorder with a healthy addiction to markers. When not working, you'll find her with her son, at the baseball field, and most likely, with markers, sketchbook, and a map in hand. She believes exploring through another’s eyes, languages, experiences, and terrain is vital to making sense of our evolving world. You can find her on Twitter @wendi322.
