Carrie Bubb `93 majored in political science at Earlham, with concentrations in comparative politics and western political philosophy. She also remembers particularly enjoying history and german classes at Earlham, and took as many as she could, also studying abroad on Earlham's Germany/Austria program, led by Rick and Barbara Jurasek.
After Earlham, she studied international law in Switzerland, with a focus in International Minority Protection Law, under the auspices of a Rotary International Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship. In 2001, she decided on teaching as a second career and returned to school to get a teaching certification. As a secondary educator, she has been really excited that the Earlham stories that she uses in class has helped to connect some really great students with Earlham College (eight of her former students are currently enrolled at Earlham!).
Carrie's interests as a teacher are in interdisciplinary and inquiry-based learning, service-learning, and global classrooms. She is excited to be returning to Fort Wayne Community Schools district in northern Indiana for the 2019-2020 school year to teach in a new STEAM interdisciplinary-learning project pilot.
Carrie lives in Fort Wayne with her three children. Riley recently graduated from Bowdoin and is looking at grad schools, Brady is a junior at Earlham, and Sophie is a fifth grader. She began her term on the Alumni Council in July 2019, and is currently a part of the Engagement Committee.
