Courtney Millerick is entering her 23rd year of teaching.   Growing up in a family of educators, including her mom and her grandmother, she knew she wanted to be a teacher from any early age.

This is her third year at Green Street school after spending the last 17 years at Vernon Elementary School.  She had a wonderful time at Vernon, but she is very excited about all the great things happening at Green Street and that she is able to be a part of them.
