I am a Raleigh native who answered the calling to be a lifelong educator. I prespic.jpggraduated with English and history degrees from North Carolina State University and earned ESL certification and a master's degree in library science from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I began my career in education
as a high school English teacher before transitioning to school library media. In 2008, I earned National Board Certification in library media. Joining the NC Department of Public Instruction in 2012, I am currently the state’s School Library Media and Copyright Consultant in the Division of Digital Teaching and Learning.
