Meet the Staff : Courtney Robinson


How did you get your name?

I was born and my mom thought I looked like a Courtney, instead of Emily that they had planned before birth.


Who are the important people (animals) in your life?

My husband, Austin and our dog Milo. My family and I are very close and have weekly Sunday dinners with my parents and my brother's family.


Why did you become a teacher? I knew from a young age that no matter what path I took, I would be working with children. They're so passionate, smart, and loving. It's rewarding to be able to do what I love daily.


Indoors or Outdoors? Why? Due to COVID-19, I have grown to like the outdoors more than I already did. I love going on walks and to the beach, if only Indiana had an ocean.


Morning, Afternoon or Evening? I've grown to be a morning person. I love waking up and being able to get done what I have to do. Then, I can enjoy the long day ahead without as much worry.


Read the book or watch the movie? The books are always better! However, if you read them before the movie it always is a disappointment because of all the missing details.


Salty or Sweet? What are your favorites? Both! Chips & salsa are my go to as well as cookie dough ice cream on these hot summer days!


Best book you ever read? Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire


What is your favorite quote? "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." - Dumbledore


What is your hope for the 2020-2021 school year? To be in the classroom again seeing all of the many smiling faces I miss daily!
