Courtney Rutledge

I chose to become a PLUS Resident because I believe children are the largest underdeveloped resource we possess as a nation and I want to leverage my passion, experience, and skills to help support teachers, improve student learning, and redefine schools as the center of the community in which they are located.

Prior to the Residency, I served for nine years as a classroom educator with experience ranging from Kindergarten to seventh grade. Throughout my career, I’ve led many students toward mastery of grade level standards, social competency, and emotional stability. Furthermore, I have supported teachers with implementing small group instruction as well as building positive relationships with students. Most importantly, I have actively cultivated a reputation for uniting teams of educators around effective practices and advocacy for all students.
