  • Courtney started her teaching career in 2010 at a boarding school in Madison, Connecticut where she lived with and taught neurodivergent students in grades 9-12. 

  • Missing her hometown, she applied for an opening at her alma mater, Flagler Palm Coast High School, in 2011. She worked as a paraprofessional until taking an opportunity to teach Advanced Placement Biology at Matanzas High School. 

  • With her first child on the way, Courtney returned to Flagler Palm Coast to teach general biology in 2012 where her baby could attend the on-site childcare facilities.

  • When i3 Academy opened up as one of Flagler's first flagships, Courtney jumped at the opportunity to teach in a more cross-curricular setting. Courtney worked at i3 Academy as a science and art teacher from 2014-2017, earning recognition as "Teacher of the Year" and receiving New Tech Network's prestigious "Best-in-Network" award.

  • Courtney left i3 Academy after her third child was born to design curriculum remotely for New Tech Network.

  • When her partner, Blake, was presented with an opportunity to be a principal at a New Tech Network school in Northern California, they moved their young family across the country to expand their experiences.

  • Missing home again, Courtney and her family returned after Blake completed his school year in California. Blake now works remotely for New Tech Network as a school development coach.

  • Courtney took a competitive position as an Education Coordinator at Marineland Dolphin Adventure in 2018 where she re-designed their educational curriculum to be aligned with the state's academic standards. Ultimately, she returned to the classroom at Old Kings Elementary for one more year while her oldest daughter attended kindergarten.

  • After the 2018-2019 school year, Courtney decided to focus on raising her young family while working remotely on curriculum development. She is currently a contractor with various public education clients nationwide. ​
