Profile picture for user corinne-thomas

Corinne has been with the Rennie Center since January of 2022, assisting on projects including the Condition of Education Report and the EdImpact Research Consortium. She is currently a first-year M.P.P. student at Brandeis University's Heller School of Social Policy and Management where she concentrates in Economic and Racial Equity. Before policy school, Corinne worked for three years as a 3rd grade teacher in Holyoke, MA, where she lived out her passion for serving students and families. However, as a teacher, she quickly understood the limits of her role in enacting systemic change and decided to pursue a career in education policy. Therefore, Corinne is elated to apply both her analytical training and real-world teaching experience to support the Rennie Center's work. Always an educator at heart, she intends to build a career focused on holistically supporting students, families, and teachers. In addition to her M.P.P., Corinne holds an M.Ed. from Boston University and a B.A. in political science from Tufts University.
