Kindergarten to 2nd Grade: Courtney Day
I was born and raised in Sharpsburg, GA. I have been attending the Peachtree City Seventh-day Adventist church for my whole life. I graduated from Southern Adventist University this May 2019 receiving my degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement to teach English as a Second Language. Four years ago, I went out as a student missionary to an orphanage called Familia Feliz in Bolivia. It was the most incredible experience of my life. I taught 1st and 2nd grade, was a house mom to ten girls, and did many other crazy things that the mission field calls for daily. Caring for kids is my passion which is I have been a girl’s counselor and assistant girl’s village director at Cohutta Springs Youth Camp for the past five summers. I cannot wait to spend time with and get to know each of my students this upcoming school year! I know that God will provide us with a year full of learning and growing in Him.
