Courtnay Hough became an accidental teacher, when she decided to join Teach For America as part of the 2007 Los Angeles Corps. It was there she learned (through much trial and error) that she had a knack for teaching.
She obtained an MA as an Education Specialist, Cross-Categorical, K-12 at Loyola Marymount University in 2009. For 12 years she worked as a special education teacher in California, Michigan and Arizona.
She quit teaching in 2018, but still had love for students and empathy for teachers. She dreamed of somehow making their lives better. At a very special brunch in April, 2019 she and long-term collaborator Katrina Glenn decided to make that dream a reality by forming Azulita.
She currently lives in Phoenix, AZ with her partner and Azulita collaborator, Adam E. Hunt and their two beloved fur babies. In her free time she enjoys crafting, trivia and costuming.
Katrina Glenn has 7 years of experience as a Special Education and English teacher. She has a M.Ed in Curriculum Design and non-profit experience working in social justice and leadership development.
Her educational philosophy is student-centered. She strives to empower all students to recognize their strengths in order to develop individual solutions.
Katrina is an Arizona native who enjoys yoga, family happy hours, live music, meditating, writing, traveling, and trying new foods. She believes most tasks are improved with a good laugh.
Katrina is looking forward to this new adventure and is so thankful for all the incredible individuals who have shaped the woman she is today.
Adam E. Hunt grew up in a family of educators, and has always respected the profession.
He can’t ignore the profound impact great teachers had on him, molding him into the person he is today. Though he hasn’t set foot in a classroom for over 15 years, he continues to strive to be a life-long learner.
He has over 15 years of design experience, and has won many awards for his work. He’s worked with everyone from local businesses to big companies like: Universal, Dreamworks, Medtronic and Cotton.
As a student he was frustrated by the lack of quality and consistency in the materials. He hopes through good design he can give the students of today the materials he wished he had.
