My name is Courtney Maready. I have been teaching in North Carolina for 5 years and love every second of working with my students! I am a native North Carolinian from Pine Level, North Carolina and a proud graduate of Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. I graduated from Lee in 2015 with a BS in Interdisciplinary studies and Elementary Education Prek-3 and K-6. I started my journey in education during my time at Lee. I fell in love with the idea of having a direct hand in helping children get the best education in all circumstances. I am a firm believer is Social Emotional Learning. I believe that building relationships through SEL and using a lens of equity are the foundations to true learning. It is my passion to fight for every student that comes across my path and their access to the education they deserve.
