Senior Research Aide
Darlene Brooks joined the Center as a senior research aide on the DCCS Program: ESL and Classroom Teachers Working Together with Students and Families project in November 2018. Her association with the Center began, however, in 2016 when she worked as a private contractor for the Duke Incredible Years study and the Duke TRI Project. Prior to working with the Center, Brooks retired from a 12-year career as a high school math teacher, having worked in both Durham and Wake counties. Most of her career experience has been related to the field of telecommunications, having worked as an outside plant engineer and as a configuration manager. Brooks volunteers with several civic and fraternal organizations that have outreach to children and adolescents living in Wake and Durham counties.
