Courtney joined the Education Team at Shelburne Farms as School Programs Coordinator in January 2016. A total dream job! She works with educators to coordinate school programs at the Farm and outreach experiences that enhance and support student work in the classroom. Courtney has a passion for learning that happens outside the walls of school and has a background in public, private, charter, urban, rural, outdoor and environmental education. Within these settings, she’s held different positions that have given her an insightful and unique perspective on teaching and learning. Having spent the last ten years in urban education, Courtney is excited to reconnect to the land by exploring life on the Farm with kids, educators, and families through the school programs, summer camps, and professional learning opportunities.
When she’s not at the Farm, you can find her on her yoga mat, in the mountains hiking and skiing, or traveling to new places near and far.
