Hi! I am Cortney Philpot, and I am looking forward to your child and/or you being in my class this year. I graduated from Valdosta State University in 2017 with a Middle Grades Education Degree concentrated in math and science. In January 2018, I added social studies as well. I taught at Cook Middle School from January 2018- May 2018, and am so excited to be back "home" at HMS!
My favorite time of the year is the summer (probably as well as yours), so I can spend time with my family enjoying the sunshine. I am married and have a two year old daughter.
I have an enthusiasm for learning new things, and enjoy sharing that with my students. My classroom is bright, cheery, and inviting. I believe that hard work, humor, honesty, a good attitude, and a positive mindset go a long way.
Come to class everyday with a smile and a good attitude. Leave class the same way, and the middle part will just fall into place.
