Courtney first joined RSOPA in Summer of 2006 whilst looking for a summer job and finding a post for an assistant at a new performing arts school in Worthing. After helping at the summer schools for 3 years Courtney joined the teaching team as drama teacher in 2009 whilst studying for her BA Degree in Theatre Arts which she completed in 2011. Since teaching at RSOPA Courtney’s love of teaching has grown as she is now looking into completing her PGCE to take her teaching to another level and to broaden her knowledge to pass on to her pupils. Courtney loves teaching her group classes and private lessons as she is watching her pupils turn into confident young people with a wide range of skills to help them in everyday life as well as performing. Courtney loves teaching at RSOPA with her colleagues who inspire her, as well as the pupils. It is a great place to teach with such eager, enthusiastic and bubbly people.
