Kourtney Bauwsell Vang joins Rocketship after five years as an administrator at Milwaukee Collegiate Academy (MCA), a charter high school also on Milwaukee’s Northside. While at MCA, Kourtney worked closely with teachers, students, and families to create a school curriculum and culture that would help more of MCA’s graduates get ‘to and through college’. As part of this work, Kourtney helped oversee the implementation of Summit Learning, an entirely new project-based, blended learning instructional model and curriculum for MCA students and teachers. Prior to her work at MCA, Kourtney was a social studies teacher and instructional coach at the Hmong American Peace Academy (another Northside charter school) and a 2010 Teach For America corps member. Kourtney is humbled and overjoyed that she can continue her work serving families on the northside of Milwaukee in her new role at Rocketship.
Graduating from Purdue and Marquette University, Kourtney also holds an MBA from the Milwaukee School of Engineering as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow.
