Courtney Varner

Literacy Trainer

What I like most about my role within the Center is…

I enjoy working with educators from wide ranges of schools and districts.

What I believe in

I believe that every child has the capability of becoming a reader. It’s our role as educators to reflect, refine and grow our knowledge and practice to ensure all students become independent readers.
