When leading the PL Committee, Faith has embodied shared leadership, and she empowers committee members to engage their interests in order to lead professional learning work for NCSPA members. Faith has helped school psychologists enhance their professional skills by supporting 20 NCSPA professional learning events this year. Additionally, she has taken a leadership role in organizing and preparing for NCSPA’s Lunch, Learn, and Collaborate sessions.
