Ms. Courtney Blackmon

I am so excited about this school year. I am Courtney Blackmon, and this is my eighth year teaching. I have taught at Highland Oaks Elementary since my teaching career began. My heart is truly in the Nest. I attended the University of Memphis where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. My immediate family consists of my mother, two sisters, one nephew, and one niece. I am the oldest of my two sisters. My nephew is 8 years old and my niece is 3 years old, and both of them are extremely SPOILED. I am elated about being your teacher, and welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

Welcome to a new adventure in your life as you embark on a fun, unusual, and different way of learning. I’m so excited and honored to be your Pre-K teacher for the 2023 – 2024 school year. This is my 12th year of teaching and my 11th year at Highland Oaks Elementary School. During my years of teaching, I’ve taught kindergarten and first grade, but Pre-K has left its mark on my heart and teaching career. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have two sons who are the love of our lives. Again, welcome to Pre-K and I’m looking forward to having a great year with you in my class.
