Mrs. Courtney Shaw

I am Courtney Fondren Shaw. I am originally from Steens, MS. I now reside in Millport, AL with my husband, Jeremy Shaw. We are blessed with two children, Tatum and Jackson. We attend Macedonia Free Will Baptist Church in Millport.

I graduated high school from New Hope High School in 2003. I attended Northeast Mississippi Community College in Booneville, MS to start my path towards completing my degree in Elementary Education. After my two years at NEMCC, I transferred to Mississippi State University and then to Mississippi University for Women where I completed my degree in Elementary Education in 2008. I also completed my master’s degree in Educational Theory and Practice at Arkansas State University in 2012.

Since then, I have taught at several schools: New Hope Elementary (Columbus, MS) 3rd grade, Victory Christian Academy (Columbus, MS) 3rd grade, Franklin Academy (Columbus, MS) 3rd and 4th grade, and Vernon Elementary (Vernon, AL) 2nd grade. I am so happy to be at my forever school, South Lamar School, teaching 2nd grade. We have a great school here at South Lamar, but what makes us great is that we are family and we love our school!
