I am entering my 13th year of teaching and have taught kindergarten, first grade, special education 4th and 5th grade, and am now moving on up to second grade. I received my bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in elementary education in 2007 from the University of Northern Colorado. I then went on to receive my masters degree in special education generalist from the University of Northern Colorado in 2012. I am licensed to teach elementary education K-6 as well as special education.
I enjoy working at Vanguard because of the diverse population. I like learning about all of the different backgrounds my students come from and finding ways to incorporate that into my classroom. I have learned so much in the three years I have been here and cannot wait to see what I will learn this year. I have always had a passion for working with kids and have known from a young age that I would like to devote my life to it. I enjoy helping my students succeed and helping them reach even higher goals. Once a student has been in my class, they remain one of my students in my heart forever.
Hello! My name is Courtney Hunt and I am a second grade teacher at Vanguard Classical School's West Campus. I have a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia College & State University, and six years of teaching experience--three of which have been at VCS! I love teaching second grade because the students are beginning to look outside of themselves, are full of curiosity, and eager to learn about the world around them. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia but moved to Denver four years ago from Southeast, Alaska where I lived and worked for three and half years. When I am not teaching, I enjoy outdoor activities, singing, dancing, cooking, and live music! Teaching is my greatest passion and I always look forward to what the next school year will bring.Email
My name is Cassie. I went to Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky where I got my degree in Elementary Education. I've lived on and off in Colorado for 2 years now and just made the move to Denver in January. I also started working at Vanguard in January 2020 with our second grade team as an educational assistant and love it! In my free time I enjoy hiking, reading a good book, or trying out a new recipe!
