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.
