Courtney was born and raised in Harlem, New York, and attended Facing History High School in Manhattan. With the support of Facing History, Courtney attended the University of Albany, where she enrolled in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). During her years at college, she volunteered with children of various ages, which led her to be a teacher’s assistant in the summer of 2014. The teacher’s assistant internship ultimatedly inspired Courtney to pursue education. She greatly looks forward to her work at Blue Engine this year, and hopes to meet people with similar visions of changing student’s lives and learning.
