Caroline has been a first and second teacher at FSMN since 2017. She graduated from Macalester College before earning her master's degree from the University of Minnesota.

From 2005-2014 she taught first grade at the Walden Center and School in Berkeley, CA, a nationally-recognized progressive school. She's also been trained in diversity, conflict resolution, teaching social justice, and in programs to better serve students with ADHD.

She and her wife, Yvette Soignier, have two sons, Eliot--a FSMN student--and Arlo.

"I am thrilled to join the Friends School of Minnesota staff in the fall. My passion for child-centered, progressive education and my belief in the Quaker values of peace, simplicity, and social justice will guide my teaching in the Jungle classroom. I look forward to teaching and learning with my students and getting to know the rest of the community."
