About Courtenay


Bio

I am the mother of five children (ages 6, 9, 10, 13 and 15) who have all been home educated by me for at least several years. I now teach at the university-model school where all of my children attend and I LOVE teaching! More importantly, I want all students to LOVE learning and I am told by my students that I am able to "make boring subjects interesting."

I was a lawyer for over 16 years and I was also raised by attorneys and an English teacher mom. Proper speaking and writing is...

I am the mother of five children (ages 6, 9, 10, 13 and 15) who have all been home educated by me for at least several years. I now teach at the university-model school where all of my children attend and I LOVE teaching! More importantly, I want all students to LOVE learning and I am told by my students that I am able to "make boring subjects interesting."

I was a lawyer for over 16 years and I was also raised by attorneys and an English teacher mom. Proper speaking and writing is vital to being a successful lawyer and by loving reading (which I encourage everyone to do!), proper speaking, spelling and writing comes naturally.

I was a small business/national franchise owner for years in addition to majoring in Economics in college (which accounted for one-third of my degree). Economics affects us all daily, which fascinates me, and as an Economics teacher, I show my students how and where in the real world economic principles can be seen in action.

I am an American history buff and I have lived my life in and around government and the law. Much like economic principles affect our daily lives, American history and government also affect our daily lives. In addition to looking backwards at our history and knowing what all good U.S. citizens should know, I encourage and teach students to look around their worlds and see history repeating itself and our government in action.

English, grammar, spelling, reading, history and economics are all totally do-able for EVERYONE and can even be fun! These subjects affect all aspects of our lives and are necessary and even interesting when viewed, learned and experienced from a hands-on perspective.

I was a champion Lincoln-Douglas debater in high school. I grew up to become a litigation lawyer (speaking in court on behalf of clients) for over 16 years. I was also the Director of Legal Education for all lawyers in the state of Oklahoma and I moderated and led two seminars weekly for 100 to 300 lawyers. I have over seven years experience as a regularly scheduled live TV news guest "expert" on a variety of subjects and I have recently started appearing in movies and national commercials.
