My name is Courtney Watkins, and I'm so excited to be your child's Math and Science teacher this year! I am a graduate of Bolton High School and the University of Memphis. I taught 4th grade in Sumner County for several years before returning home to Shelby County. With Shelby County Schools, I taught 4th grade and Kindergarten. This is my 14th year teaching, my 2nd year at OES, and my 1st year teaching 3rd grade. I love working with Ms. Whitley, and I think this will be a fantastic year!
I am married, have 4 children (2 biological, 2 step) and 2 dogs. My favorite things to do are hang out with friends and family, watch SEC football (Roll Tide!), and read books. My favorite color is pink. I love Target and Barnes and Noble. I could eat Mexican food every night of the week! My favorite flowers are peonies (especially pale pink ones). My favorite quote is, "The purpose in life is life with a purpose!"
