My name is Courtney Brown and I am honored to be the first grade teacher this year. I was a teacher in Richland 2 for 9 years where I taught 2nd grade for three years and 1st grade for six years. I earned my Masters in Literacy from Coastal Carolina University in 2016. My husband and I have been married for 11 years and have a little girl named Elizabeth. She is starting Kindergarten this year! We also have a fur baby, Justice, who is 8 years old. He is nothing but a 60lb ball of fur and loves our little girl. I love to be physically active, spend time in our pool, and go shopping. My shadow (Elizabeth) goes where I go and loves to help me do projects around the house. We take down wallpaper, paint, and do other hands-on projects all the time. I am looking forward to the coming year and growing together daily.
