She is currently the 4th and 5th grade math teacher at Arthur Ashe Charter School, an elementary school in New Orleans that is a part of the FirstLine Schools network of open admission charter schools. As a Teach for America corps member in New Orleans, she was a founding 4th grade teacher at Willie Smith Elementary when it re-opened after Hurricane Katrina. In her first year teaching, Caroline led her students to grow an average of three grade levels. The following year, she taught 4th grade math and led 100% of her students to pass the high-stakes exam at a proficient level or higher. She also worked to develop first year teachers as a Teach for America learning team leader. Caroline aspires to cultivate high performing open-enrollment schools for students in New Orleans.
