KENDALL – The school district is mourning the loss of a special education teacher.

Courtney Fannon, 29, passed away on Friday with her infant daughter, Hadley Jaye.

“Courtney was a special education teacher who served her students with passion and joy each day,” District Superintendent Nick Picardo said in a message to the community. “When she wasn’t in her classroom sharing her love and gift for teaching with her students, she could be found walking our halls with a smile and a friendly hello.”

School is closed today. Counselors will be available at the elementary school for students and staff on Tuesday.

A GoFundMe has been established to help Fannon’s family.
