She is also an advocate for school libraries and strives to provide our community with the best library programs in each school in the District she serves. Makerspaces are integrated into the library program in West Orange as is 3D printing. Nancy arranged for training of District staff from the National Center for the Advancement of STEM Education on the use of Fusion 360 to promote the use of 3D printers in her District. As a result, students are able to develop their ideas into something concrete only limited by their imaginations.

Through staff development, she trains teachers how to implement 21 st century skills into the curricula to better prepare students for success in college and career. She is the Perkins Grant administrator in West Orange which currently has 9 approved CTE programs with 2 more in the works.
