Carrie Cotton Business Partner

From a very young age, Carrie saw the dramatic impact education could have in shaping and altering the course of one’s life. Determined to make education equitable for all children, regardless of income, race or background, she joined Teach For America’s Recruitment Team.

For seven years she recruited teachers and staff members, but eventually wanted to understand the struggles and triumphs of teachers firsthand. She decided to do the corps herself and became a founding kindergarten teacher at an elementary school located in East New York, Brooklyn.

Carrie has applied her experiences as a teacher and recruitment professional to her work at Educators for Excellence and is passionate about impacting the lives of students all across the nation by hiring talented individuals to drive E4E’s mission forward.

"Talent is the key to ensuring all students, regardless of their background, receive the opportunities they deserve."
