Rebecca Caroline James- CCS Board Member
Caroline is currently a law student at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She is pursuing an interest in educational equity policies and practices, with a long-term goal of reforming teacher compensation nationally to bring the profession to a new level of respect and competition worldwide.
In 2013, Caroline participated in Teach for America. She also taught upper elementary on a Lakota Reservation in South Dakota for two years prior to enrolling in law school.
While an undergraduate at Virginia Tech, Caroline volunteered for three years at a shelter for women and children who had been victims of domestic abuse. She also spent a summer as a volunteer intern with a Juvenile Court Judge in Massachusetts observing the direct interactions of juveniles and their parents with the legal system.
Caroline hopes to use her experience leading a classroom, her knowledge of the intersection between public policies and practical applications, and her background in psychology and the social sciences to benefit a new generation of students in learning, growing, and changing the world.
