Hello and Welcome!
My name is Courtney Wood and I am excited to experience this upcoming school year at TSN Middle School. From a young age, reading and writing have been near and dear to my heart; however, I understand that is not the case for every student. I strive to make my classroom a place of positivity to cultivate a passion for learning in life-long readers whether that reading be literary classics or blueprints on a job. I operate on three basic principles: Be respectful, Be responsible, and Be safe.
I graduated from Alma High School in 2011 where I continued on my educational journey at Central Michigan University, graduating in December 2017. After graduating from CMU, I had the privilege of long-term subbing at Shepherd Middle/High School for a maternity leave. After that placement finished up, I was lucky enough to come here to TSN to finish out the 2017/2018 school year as the 8th grade English teacher. It is a huge honor to be able to return to TSN for my first year of teaching in my own classroom where I endeavor to challenge my students' minds and push them to greatness.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog. As new homeowners, we enjoy completing weekend projects to fix up our space and truly make it our own. In addition, I enjoy Michigan football, camping, cooking, and sewing. I am an avid music listener and have ecclectic taste ranging from Broadway to Pop-Punk.
I look forward to working together to provide the best educational experience for the 8th grade English students.
