Mrs. Katie McCourtie
My name is Katie McCourtie. This will be my tenth year teaching. I've taught kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. I am so excited to teach your second grader at RBES, Goooo Rockets!
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. I received my Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University. I've earned a Reading Endorsement and a Gifted Endorsement. I am currently in the process of earning my Dyslexia Endorsement. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, husband - Matt, and our golden doodle - Mosby. We love going to the beach, lake, or anywhere with sunshine and water. I enjoy going to college sporting events, traveling, playing pickleball, and reading a good book!
It is very important to me that every single day I help my students feel loved, safe, and valued 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 second-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!
