Courtney Shelton, BA, MS

Teacher and published poet, Courtney Shelton has a B.A. in Philosophy from Trinity University and an M.S. in English Education from the University of Tennessee.

Courtney has been accepted into writing seminars such as Bread Loaf, Iowa, Sewanee, and Hollins, was awarded instructor of the year her third year of teaching and named the most influential teacher in The Kansas City Star. At Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy, Courtney’s A.P. class scores were the highest in the school, and her non-A.P. students excelled by being exposed to a nearly identical curriculum. As a college counselor, Courtney created an entire college counseling program, wrote a 40-page college handbook, and guided students toward acceptance by top-tier schools.

While her experience and commitment make working with Courtney enjoyable as well as productive, the logical thesis statement or enthymeme is the true cornerstone of her writing program. University of Oregon’s composition department describes the enthymeme as a “reasoned” thesis that is similar to the kind of thesis statements with which most clients are likely already familiar. Unlike the typical thesis, the enthymeme is formed by a single claim supported by a single reason (the single best reason to support the claim, rather than by multiple reasons). The body of the completed essay or speech is no longer a disconnected list of three supporting ideas but rather a systematic, logical exploration of a complex argument that only the enthymeme can both clarify and direct.

Courtney is able to relate to her high school students and still fondly remembers her accomplishments as a track record-holder, state soccer champion, and a horsewoman, qualifying for Madison Square Garden in the horse-jumping circuit. At present, and in relating to adult clients, she still runs, takes pictures, attempts hot yoga, and on some days, manages to entertain her high-energy German Shepherd puppy.

With all clients, Courtney continues to embody the characteristics that past students, parents and administrators appreciated — a direct nature, a sense of humor, and a firm belief that writing can not only discover an argument, but that in the act of writing the writer can develop a deeper, more poetic sense of one’s self.
