Caitlin Ballotta Rajagopalan

Caitlin is the Director of Educational Programs for Verse Video Education and an associate producer for its flagship television series, Poetry in America. Having grown up watching her mother, a high school teacher, find creative ways to incorporate technology into her lessons–even in the days before computers were classroom staples–Caitlin has been a believer in technology’s power to enhance learning for as long as she can remember. Caitlin has extensive archival research experience and has worked on a number of digitization projects at libraries and archives in Louisiana, Washington, DC, and Massachusetts.  Her desire to make high-quality educational materials accessible to teachers and students everywhere brought her to the Poetry in America team in 2014. Caitlin is a graduate of Harvard University, where she studied English and American literature with particular emphases on poetry and Renaissance drama.
