Courtney Branch

1st Grade

Welcome to First Grade!

I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year.

It is my belief that my role as an educator is to help students flourish in school and also to create an accepting environment for students as they grow. I strive to be a positive motivator for students in order for them to feel confident and accomplished. We are all going to have a fun time! 

Please make sure your child takes a water bottle to school everyday.

About Me!

I have lived in DeSoto County my entire life, and I do not plan on leaving. I went to Olive Branch schools my entire childhood K-12. I then graduated college with honors with a Bachelors in Elementary Education with endorsements in math, social studies, and special education. I continued my education and also have a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction. In early 2021, I married by husband, Joshua, and we have the sweetest cat named Simon. When I am not in the classroom, I am spending time with my friends and family playing board games. I am so thrilled to be at Greenbrook.
