In case you haven't heard, Charles Temple, one of our Ocracoke School teachers, will be competing on the TV quiz show Jeopardy early next month. Charles teaches high school English, and is something of a polymath, so none of us were surprised when he made the cut.
Charles will be competing in a tournament for teachers which lasts two weeks. The shows were taped at the end of March, but Charles is sworn to secrecy about the outcomes.
As you can imagine, the Ocracoke community is looking forward to seeing Charles go head to head with teachers from other parts of the country.
The tournament begins Monday, May 2. Charles appears on Thursday, May 5. Be sure to mark you calendars.
