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 eighth 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. As of Summer 2021, I have also received my Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University, with a Reading Endorsement. In my free time, I love spending time with my family, friends, husband - Matt, and our golden doodle - Mosby. We enjoy spending time at the beach, lake, or anywhere with sunshine and water. We love traveling to new places and going to college sporting events.
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 this year. I can't wait to see all of the progress they will make. Thank you for sharing your kiddo with us here at RBES! I know we will have a wonderful year together!
