Mrs. Katie McCourtie
My name is Katie McCourtie. I am so excited to teach your first grader here at RBES, Goooo Rockets! This will be my seventh year teaching. I've taught both kindergarten and first grade, with the majority of my time spent in first grade.
I'm originally from Wilmington, North Carolina. I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, with concentrations in Language Arts and Special Education. I am currently working on earning my Masters of Education from Kennesaw State University, as well as a Reading Endorsement. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Matt, and our golden doodle, Mosby. We also enjoy spending time at the beach or lake, traveling to new states and countries, and going to college football games.
It is very important to me that every single day, I help my students feel valued, safe, and loved when they enter and leave my classroom. More importantly, I want them to feel excited to return the following day. I look forward to working with you and your first grade Smartie! I know we will have a wonderful year together!
