My name is Courtney Burnett and I am excited to be teaching 6th grade Social Studies at Northpointe again this year!

 

I am a graduate of Texas A&M University and love watching Aggie football...Whoop! I have lived in Texas most of my life, but have also lived in Florida. I love the beach!


I got married this past summer, so I'm still trying to get used to my new name. We can learn it together! When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy spending time playing with my very spoiled dog.
