TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders! My teaching career started in Maine, and now I am living in New York.

MY TEACHING STYLE

First and foremost, I believe in making genuine connections with the students I teach. I want them each to know that they are safe and respected and in the best possible place to learn new things! Secondly, I want them to feel inspired to dig a little deeper and to always ask questions. I want them to see me as a learner myself. Always reading, always researching. Finally, I believe that it's my responsibility to provide kids with an organized, structured environment where they can reach their fullest potential. I strive for lessons where kids are involved - trying and perhaps failing. I want them to learn to persist amidst setbacks. Ultimately, my job is to show kids HOW to find information and HOW to analyze it. Though subject matter is definitely important, it's even more important that kids are learning how to learn (and how to be a decent human being). So long story short - I'm here to connect, to inspire, to teach kids to be inquisitive and brave, kind, determined and honest. To be a good friend and a good listener. The writing and math, the science, is secondary.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BA from the University of Maine with a minor in Psychology. I am currently completing my Masters in Special Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I’m Courtney. 30. ​Maine girl at heart, currently living in upstate New York with my news anchor husband, our sweet 7-month-old daughter Finley, and our snuggly rescue pup Belle. I’m a middle school teacher with a love for those “feel good” moments. My personal passions include: being a mama to a tiny, beautiful human, the intoxicating smell of book stores, maple almond butter by the spoonful, digging through racks at consignment shops, and slowly sipping my iced coffee while strolling the aisles at Target. I also enjoy: words, moments in nature with friends, being crafty, reminiscing, and overall just being my scattered yet organized mess of a self. I'm just your average teacher mama striving for greatness.
