Mr. Courtney has 13 years of teaching experience. He taught in the United States for 4 years in North Carolina and 9 years in South Korea at KFS. He believes each and every student regardless of his or her learning abilities adds to the rich tapestry of their classrooms. Each student has a unique set of strength that offers distinctive rewards to their school community. He works hard to create an engaging classroom experience for all my students, while providing a safe environment that encourages them to think critically and take chances. In science and mathematics there is often more than one way to solve a problem. He pushes his students to work hard and keep an open mind. Mr. Courtney wants my students to know that they are not defined by their great weakness or limited by their greatest success. As educators in the 21st century, it is our responsibility to equip today’s youth with skills and knowledge that will allow them to overcome tomorrow’s challenges. Mr. Courtney earned a Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction in the fall of 2015. He earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Middle Childhood Education in the spring of 2006. Both degrees were earned through Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio.
