Ms. Courtney Gbolo
The 2017-18 school year is my 11th year of teaching and 2nd year at Como Park. As a resident of Saint Paul I feel very lucky to serve the families and students in Saint Paul. I graduated in 2006 from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a Degree in Family Consumer Science Education and a Minor in Health and Fitness. In May of 2011 I completed my Master’s degree in Education through Hamline University. My capstone project focused on incorporating literacy into content area classes. For fun I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three daughters. Also, I enjoy athletics (watching and playing), cooking for family/friends, and reading a good book.
