Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. K. Kennedy Rizzuto
It is great to be here teaching seventh grade Social Studies here at Dillard.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Government from St. Lawrence University in Northern New York. I earned my Juris Doctor from the University of the Pacific - McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California. My North Carolina Bar License is Active. Since graduating from law school, I worked in the California State Senate on environmental legislation, and spent the next decade and a half serving as a Deputy District Attorney in a rural California county. Ask me about my helicopter ride-along! Last year, I had the privilege of teaching Legal Research and Writing at Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law - Campbell University in Raleigh.
My husband and I moved to North Carolina to be closer to family. I have three children in the Durham School system - Brendan is 16, Benjamin is 14, and Annabelle is 12.
