Feather Linn and Cortney Jackson join Bailey Education as Arkansas Project Managers.

Our Arkansas Team has exciting news! Cortney Jackson and Feather Linn join Bailey Education Group as our new state project managers. With their past experiences in education and leadership, they both bring tremendous value to our team. We cannot wait to see what these two achieve in their roles!

Cortney Jackson is a former Teacher, Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal, and Principal who brings 20 years of experience in serving in a K-12 school setting. She holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in elementary education and a Specialist degree in Educational Administration.

Cortney has worked with the Bailey Education Group for the previous two years as an ELA Instructional Coach. Recently, she began coaching and Project Management tasks in Arkansas and is enjoying getting back to her Arkansas roots. Cortney’s favorite motto is, “anything worth doing is worth doing well or not done at all.”

Feather Linn is a uniquely versatile leader with experience in all facets of education. Her journey began in Career and Technical Education and soon expanded into middle level science and social studies. This work led her to the Arkansas Leadership Academy Teacher Institute where she mentored emerging teacher leaders. Shortly thereafter, Feather spent time in rural Arkansas as an elementary teacher and went on to earn a Master of Science from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway.

Feather honed her professional development skills at ArkansasPBS where she managed and created content for ArkansasIDEAS, Arkansas’s online professional development portal.

After her family moved to central Arkansas, Feather joined the Little Rock School District as a Library Media and Technology Specialist. Recognized as a true teacher leader, she was selected Teacher of the Year and soon asked to utilize her talent in instructional coaching in both Math and Literacy.

Most recently, Feather supported Arkansas educators at the Arkansas Department of Education Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). At DESE, Feather collaborated with Arkansas superintendents and other district leaders to ensure they met the Arkansas Standards for Accreditation. Once again recognized as a leader, she was quickly promoted to the Learning Services Unit where she coordinated High-Quality Professional Learning for teachers in Arkansas.

Feather is the author of the YA novel Pickle Juice, Diamonds, and Football (Tate Publishing, 2014) and continues to reside in central Arkansas with her husband Joel, who is also an Arkansas educator.

We invite you to join us in welcoming Cortney and Feather to the Bailey Education Group family!
