Mrs. Courtney Barringer
Hi! I'm Courtney Barringer and I am thrilled to be your child's 4th grade Math and Social Studies teacher. This is my third year at Richland Elementary and my 19th year as a teacher. I started my teaching career in Memphis after graduating from Wooddale High School and earning my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from UT Martin. While teaching in Memphis, I was honored to be named News Channel 3's Educator Of the Week as well as being named as one of the district's "Irreplaceable" teachers. I returned to Memphis in 2020 after working in Minneapolis Public Schools as a Math Specialist and Charleston County Schools as a Math District Instructional/Curriculum Specialist.
When I am not at school, I spend time outside with my little boy Maximus, who is five years old. We love swimming, camping, and finding new playgrounds! I love to watch NBA Basketball and Football..Go Chiefs! Coffee, Amazon, and all things Memphis are a few of my favorite things!
I'm excited about the adventure that this school year holds!
