Carolyn Grant began her career at Winthrop University in July, 2010, as the Induction/Mentoring Specialist for the NetSCOPE Grant.  In July, 2011, Carolyn became the Director in the Office of Field and Clinical Experiences, which is an integral part of the Institute for Educational Renewal and Partnerships. 

Prior to coming to Winthrop, Carolyn was in the Chester County School District where she worked in many different capacities.  She began her career as an elementary teacher and served in this role until 1999 when she became Curriculum Coordinator at Chester Park Elementary School.  In 2004, Carolyn took on a role at the district level as District Curriculum Coordinator and Early Childhood Coordinator.  In 2005, Carolyn's passion for working with teachers new in the profession came into being.  She was trained by the New Teacher Center in effective mentoring practices and developed a mentoring program in the district to retain quality teachers.  Carolyn served as Mentoring/ADEPT/Professional Development Coordinator in Chester until moving to Winthrop where she continues to support mentors, supervisors and students in making the field and clinical experiences a rewarding opportunity for all involved.
