Hey guys, I'm Courtney-I'm a 20 something teacher living in Northeast Missouri. I'm working on revamping my blog to not only talk about teaching but to also talk about fashion and lifestyle. Teaching is really a small part of my big life and I'm excited talk about more than just the classroom. If you teach, thanks for following me and if you don't---please stay, it's not all about the classroom these days!
I married my best friend in October 2017 and we welcomed our sweet baby girl in January of this year.
I graduated college in 2011 from the University of Missouri-Columbia (MIZZOU-RAH, MIZZOU-RAH). I'm also a 2014 graduate of William Wood's University and I have my Master's degree in Elementary Administration.
I taught 3rd grade for two years in Bowling Green R-1 School district and absolutely adored everything about it. I finally decided to move back to my hometown to teach..home of Mark Twain! I taught one year of 5th grade for one year and now I'm teaching 2nd grade (4th year)! My school is about two blocks away from the Mississippi river and located right downtown near the historical district.
When I am not teaching you can usually find me running around outside, floating down a river, shopping, playing with puppies, talking(A LOT) or reading other blogs! I'm a country bumpkin at heart but I love to get away to St. Louis whenever I can for a shopping trip! I love a good run, gravel roads, Sephora, expresso in the morning and of course all my animals.
My husband trains field trial competition dogs for a living. I've always been an animal lover. We always have at least 20 dogs at our house.
I love to travel, pin, cook dinner, and hang out with my cute little pig-Gert! (Not so little anymore)
Welcome to Courtney Mann, ETC: my successes,struggles, and finds inside the classroom and out!
