Degrees and Certifications:
Courtney Schluender, Special Education Teacher
My name is Courtney Schluender. I am starting my third year here at Highland Park. I have been teaching special education for 6 years. I graduated from Concordia University, St. Paul with my Early and Elementary Education as well as K-12 licensure in Special Education. In 2016 I completed my Master's Degree in Special Education with a additional license in Austim. I currently live in White Bear Lake with my husband and 3 year old white lab, Akita. We are expecting our first child this Fall.
This past year I attended IB/PYP training in Seattle and learned lots about our school and what the program has to offer. I feel the learner profiles help our students in many ways learn and grow in their learning. I love the different units of inquiry and how all the specialists and teachers work together to reach the same learning targets and student goals.
I love working with students and helping students gain the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in the classroom.
