5th Grade Courtney Larson
Hello, my name is Courtney Larson. I have been teaching at Westwood Elementary since 2018. My teaching career started in Newton for two years, and then for one year I taught in an international private school in Medellin, Colombia. I have only taught in 5th grade, and it is my absolute favorite! 5th grade is a very special year filled with memorable events for their last year in elementary.
I graduated from Grinnell High School in 2011 and got my Elementary Education degree as well as a Reading endorsement from the Central College in May of 2015. I am also the 10th grade volleyball coach at ACHS and coach club for Centennial Volleyball Academy.
My husband Eric and I live here in Ankeny. We also have a cat who is our pride and joy! In our free time, we love to spend time with friends and family, play recreational sports, and curling up with a good book. I love nature, hiking, and traveling to new places.
We believe, achieve, and inspire!
