Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Montevallo
Words cannot express how excited I am to be a part of the faculty of West End Academy! My name is Courtni Coleman and I will be your child's 5th grade teacher this year.
I am from Birmingham, Alabama. I attended the University of Montevallo on a full academic scholarship. While there, I enjoyed being a member of the Student Alabama Educator's Association, the Student Council for Exceptional Learners, Kappa Delta Pi, Sigma Alpha Pi, Teacher's Education Committee, Dean's Student Advisory Committee, Links-Up Mentoring, and Habitat for Humanity. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in December 2008. After graduation, I taught Kindergarten at my alma mater W. J. Christian K-8 School. I then taught First Grade and Fifth Grade at Tuscaloosa Magnet School. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching Third Grade at Rocky Ridge for three years and absolutely loved teaching First Grade for the past five years. This will be my eleventh full year in the classroom.
My number one love is teaching! Besides that, I love spending time with my loved ones, reading, listening to music, and shopping. I am a pescatarian (which means I don't eat meat, only fish and seafood). Some of my favorite authors include John Grisham, Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume. My favorite book is Dr. Seuss' Oh, The Places You'll Go!
I look forward to interacting with you and your child this school year. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email at email@example.com.
