    My name is Courtney Hooper and this is my 11th year teaching at Myrtlewood Elementary School. I have known since kindergarten that I wanted to be a teacher. My kindergarten teacher believed in me so much and she pushed me to do things that I thought I couldn't do. She believed in me and I want to make that kind of impact on the students that I teach each and every year. I attended college at The University of Alabama where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in May 2004. I received my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of West Alabama in 2007. I married my love, John on October 9, 2004. We welcomed our first child Maggie on October 25, 2006. She is 11 years old and in the 6th grade at Sipsey Valley Middle School. We welcomed our son John-Logan on August 26, 2009. He is a 3rd grader at Myrtlewood. We attend Five Points Baptist Church in Northport, AL where we are very involved in the children's ministry. I love being a part of the Myrtlewood faculty and getting to know all of the amazing families that have students at Myrtlewood.
