Courtney Webster: 2017-18 Teacher of The Year Candidate

Today's Teacher of the Year candidate is Courtney Webster of Jefferson Elementary!

Courtney graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University in 2016 with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. She has spent both of her post-grad years teaching Music in Shawnee.

Courtney is married to her high school sweetheart, Gaige, and they currently do not have any pets or children, but hope to have both someday! She would love to travel to as many places as possible and hopefully visit each continent at least once. At the top of her travel bucket list, however, is Macchu Picchu in Peru.

She loves teaching because kids are so much fun and always say the weirdest things. You plan for these perfect days but then the unexpected always occurs and it makes for interesting work days. She enjoys the constant interaction with students and other teachers.

A fun fact about Courtney is that she loves to attempt to cook and bake. She says that sometimes it will go well....but not always. However she is lucky to have a husband who doubles as a guinea pig and will try all of her food!

Thank you for all that you do to go above and beyond for your students and congratulations on being Jefferson's 2017-18 Teacher of The Year!
