Mrs. Dunlap

My name is Courtney Dunlap, and I am an English I teacher at Lovelady High School. I am thrilled tobe with Princeton ISD, and I am looking forward to having your students in my class!

In addition to my experience as an educator, I have also completed my M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction. I love designing engaging lessons and figuring out ways to better serve my students. My masters thesis focused on John Dewey's principles of authentic instruction, and I really took those concepts to heart; I have not stopped expanding on that since. I also feel that to be an effective teacher you need to be committed to lifelong learning. I am always finding ways to learn more so that I can be better for my students!

When I am not in my classroom, I enjoy running, reading, and writing. My husband and I have always been adventurous; traveling is our favorite thing, and we even enjoy the "extra fun" traveling with children brings! Our son Cullen is obsessed with dinosaurs, animals, and Pokemon, and he is way too smart for his own good. Our daughter Audrey is full of spunk, and she loves anything that involves coloring and painting. We have my bonus son John on the weekends, and he is really into Minecraft right now. We also have a fluffy cat and a silver lab, so there is always plenty of fun happening at our house!

I am looking forward to a great year!
