Caroline McCullen

Caroline began her career as an English teacher, practicing her craft in classrooms in Orlando, Charleston and Raleigh. While in graduate school, she developed a keen interest in computer-assisted instruction, which led to her focus on instructional technology for the remainder of her career.  While teaching computer electives at Ligon GT Middle School, she was tapped by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) as an Educator-on-Loan and led professional development at sites across North Carolina, including the NC Center for the Advancement of Teaching. In 1996, she had the honor of being named National Technology Teacher of the Year.

In 1997, her interest in instructional technology led her to SAS where she helped implement professional development for SAS Curriculum Pathways. She has represented SAS on several state and local boards, including WakeEd Partnership, where she served as Program Chair and Chair of the Board.

While at SAS, she served as Education Strategy Director and Instructional Technologist and implemented the NC Learning Technology Initiative (NCLTI), in partnership with NC State and NCDPI.  SAS donated laptops to rural schools across North Carolina, and Caroline worked with partners, teachers and staff to help with successful implementation.

Caroline served as Director of SAS Education Initiatives under the direction of Ann Goodnight from 2008 until her retirement in 2016. She has two adult children and one grandchild now attending Wake County Public Schools.  She has spent her entire career either working in public schools or providing support for them, and she is looks forward to working with the talented board and staff of WakeEd Partnership to support the Wake County Public School System.
