Executive Director Updates

It is an honor to serve as the first Executive Director of the NCSTIIID. My responsibilities include serving as the face for the organization for advocacy purposes, as well as for presentations and attendance at meetings, conferences. My history with NCSTIIID and knowledge of the federal laws pertaining to ELs, as well as best practices for the education of ELs, equips me to support the internal and external workings of the organization.

As NCSTIIID explores their role in the ESSA era, I will

assist with market research, communications and other aspects of possible rebranding the organization.

Please join us in November and throughout the year as we strengthen the NCSTIIID voice for ELs.


Dr. David Holbrook
