Ms. Courtney's Second Grade Class

Hi there!
My name is Courtney Bailey, and I am the newest second grade teacher here at Marked Tree Elementary School! 
I graduated from Marion High School in 2013 and then started at the University of Memphis where I majored in English and minored in Mandarin Chinese. While in college, I spent a semester studying abroad in Shanghai, China and one summer in a small town in Honduras where I worked and taught with other teachers at a local school affiliated with the Catholic organization, APUFRAM International. After graduating a semester early in 2016, I started the 2017 New Year off in Prague, Czech Republic to attain my TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) certification. In 2018, I took a position at Beijing Foreign Studies University K-12 program in Beijing, China where I lived, taught, and traveled for two years. 
As you can see, I love to travel and teach! I have been lucky enough to travel to thirteen different countries and teach in four different countries. In addition to traveling, I also love to hike, kayak, play soccer, cook, read, listen to podcasts, cheer for the Memphis Tigers, Grizzlies, Memphis 901 FC, and play with my dog, Macy.
