Welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Ms. Courtney Scallan and I am teaching English Language Arts. I am very excited about the 2017-2018 school year and look forward to the amazing things that will happen this year!
I am from Madison, AL and I have lived in the area my whole life. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, hanging out by the pool, reading, shopping, and staying busy. I believe that having a positive mindset is the most important attribute someone can have. I strive to be a lifelong learner for myself, my students, and others around me!
In my classroom, I promote an atmosphere of positive mindsets, learning, respect, safety, and accountability. I am a strong believer in hands on learning and creating positive relationships with each of my students. I am excited to see the amazing things that will happen in my classroom when we all work together.
