Mrs. Kimberly Courtney

After growing up, playing soccer, beginning to teach, getting my Master's, and getting married in New Mexico- my husband and I moved to Massachusetts to pursue our careers. We spent 5 years in Massachusetts where we became Bruins fans, where we explored Walden Pond, Robert Frost's Farm, spent our anniversaries on Martha's Vineyard, and where I gave birth to our son, Miles. I taught at Northbridge High School where I was the Assistant Soccer Coach, the Link Crew Coordinator, and the AP Literature teacher. After moving to Washington and spending my first year at Woodinville, I had a 2nd baby, Little Hadley. I am excited to be at Woodinville High School where I'll be teaching Senior English.This is my 9th year teaching and I couldn't be more excited. 

Favorite book (s): A Wrinkle In Time, Sense and Sensibility, The Bean Trees, The Poisonwood Bible, Townie, 

Favorite Poems: i carry your heart with me, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening (my son's namesake poem), Jabberwocky, If, Shakespeare's Sonnet 116, This is Just to Say, Polonius' speech to Laertes
