Biography

Originally from Charlotte, NC Donald is a double Eagle, with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 2002 and master's degree in educational technology in '04 from North Carolina Central University. Donald has been a leader in education in this state since he began teaching in 2002, and recently was bestowed the honor of receiving NCCU's inaugural class of 40 under 40 alumni award.


He served in the Office of the Provost as Director of the Quality Enhancement Plan at NCCU. The goal of the QEP is to enhance students' skills in writing and speaking so that they leave NCCU prepared for their career. Previously, he directed the NCCU Teaching Fellows Program, in which he worked to increase the number of male and minority teachers through the offer of scholarships and enriched programming.


Having served as an elementary teacher at Pearsontown Elementary and president of the Durham Association of Educators, he advised Gov. Bev Perdue on the needs of North Carolina's educators as her Teacher Advisor. A lifelong volunteer, Barringer mentors at-promise youth, college student leaders and young professionals. He also serves on the N.C. PTA and Emily Krzyzewski Center Board of Directors.
