Courtney had the distinct honor of developing as a teacher at Rocketship Mateo Sheedy, serving as a teacher there for two years before Principal Jason Fromoltz encouraged her to apply to become an Assistant Principal. Inspired and supported by Jason, Courtney stepped into the Assistant Principal role at Rocketship Fuerza Community Prep, where she coached an array of teachers, and led with the same love, compassion and fire that Jason cultivated in her. Courtney has been the principal of Rocketship Mateo Sheedy since 2018. Her two sons are also Rocketeers. Courtney received her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood from Alabama A&M University in Normal, AL, and is currently working on her Master’s Degree in Special Education.
