Mrs. Connie Courtright

I have been a member of the A. Dorothy Hains Elementary School family since 2005.  Over the years, I have taught 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades.  Currently I am the Instructional Specialist.  What, you may ask, does an Instructional Specialist actually do?  The short answer is that I work with and support our teachers as they seek to continuously improve instruction for our students. 


According to educational researcher and author Joellen Killion there are ten roles for a person in my position.  So, the long answer to what I do is: I am a data coach, resource provider, mentor, curriculum specialist, instructional specialist, classroom supporter, learning facilitator, school leader, catalyst for change, and learner. 


No matter which role I am working in at any given time, my top priority is to make A. Dorothy Hains Elementary School a wonderful place for your child to learn and grow!
