Azulitas are beautiful, strong succulents that thrive in even the harshest environments. Just like educators.
Despite your resilience, the stakes keep getting higher.
You’re burdened with more work and required to pay for more out of your own pocket each year.
We started Azulita to ease that tension and support the incredible work you do.
We offer amazing materials, self-care resources, and a safe place for you to thrive.
We offer many of our materials and resources for free.
We know educators have huge, generous hearts. Our hope is that when you can, you’ll help fund this dream by purchasing our paid materials. 😍 🙌
Together we can continue lifting each other up and filling our classrooms with hope. 💙
Courtnay Hough became an accidental teacher, when they decided to join Teach For America as part of the 2007 Los Angeles Corps. It was there they learned (through much trial and error) that they had a knack for teaching.
They obtained an MA as an Education Specialist, Cross-Categorical, K-12 at Loyola Marymount University in 2009. For 12 years they worked as a special education teacher in California, Michigan and Arizona.
They quit teaching in 2018, but still had love for students and empathy for teachers. They dreamed of somehow making educator and student lives better. At a very special brunch in April, 2019 Courtnay and long-term collaborator Katrina Glenn decided to make that dream a reality by forming Azulita.
They currently live in Phoenix, AZ with their partner and Azulita collaborator, Adam E. Hunt and their two beloved fur babies. In their free time they enjoy crafting, trivia and costuming.
Katrina Glenn has 7 years of experience as a Special Education and English teacher. She has a M.Ed in Curriculum Design and non-profit experience working in social justice and leadership development.
Her educational philosophy is student-centered. She strives to empower all students to recognize their strengths in order to develop individual solutions.
Katrina is an Arizona native who enjoys yoga, family happy hours, live music, meditating, writing, traveling, and trying new foods. She believes most tasks are improved with a good laugh.
Katrina is looking forward to this new adventure and is so thankful for all the incredible individuals who have shaped the woman she is today.
Adam E. Hunt
Adam E. Hunt grew up in a family of educators, and has always respected the profession.
He can’t ignore the profound impact great teachers had on him, molding him into the person he is today. Though he hasn’t set foot in a classroom for over 15 years, he continues to strive to be a life-long learner.
He has over 15 years of design experience, and has won many awards for his work. He’s worked with everyone from local businesses to big companies like: Universal, Dreamworks, Medtronic and Cotton.
As a student he was frustrated by the lack of quality and consistency in the materials. He hopes through good design he can give the students of today the materials he wished he had.
