Alexandria Rolle Client Success Manager Read Bio × Alexandria Rolle Client Success Manager Before joining Committee for Children as a client success manager, Alexandria Rolle spent almost a decade in the classroom, teaching at the elementary and middle school levels in a variety of settings, including public, charter, private, and Title I schools. During that time and across those learning environments, she says she recognized a common need for social-emotional support and development among students. That prompted her to help pilot social-emotional learning (SEL) curricula at one of her schools. She’s been a champion of SEL ever since. “I sought out a position with Committee for Children because I’m passionate about helping educators meet the needs of their students,” says Alexandria. “I wholeheartedly believe that the only way to help children reach their maximum potential is to first meet their basic physical, social, and emotional needs.” In addition to her career in education, Alexandria worked for a tech company providing training and onboarding for their clients, which included government agencies, large hospital systems, and Fortune 500 companies. That experience helps her in her role as client success manager. She communicates effectively, accurately assesses needs, and makes strong personal connections to support people serving in different roles and levels within schools and districts. Her bachelor’s degree in psychology also provided a strong foundation for those skills. When asked to identify her SEL superpower, she says, “I have keen insight and am able to hear more than what’s said and see more than what meets the eye.” Sarah Rubin, MA Client Success Manager Read Bio × Sarah Rubin, MA Client Success Manager As a Client Success Manager at Committee for Children, Sarah Niebuhr Rubin specializes in putting our clients in the best possible position to have a great experience with our social-emotional learning (SEL) programs.

The tone, whether humorous or straight, and the details all depend on the person and the moment.” Before coming to CFC in February 2018, Sarah had the privilege of teaching students ages zero to one hundred in formal and informal educational settings. She also served as director of a school and as the Education Resource Specialist for the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation.
