Ms. Katie Courtney
Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!
I am excited to be starting my second year with the staff and students of Gurrie Middle School, and my 6th year with D105.
I have been teaching Mathematics for over 20 years, and absolutely love it! This year I will be teaching the Accelerated Math classes for 7th grade, and a Core 7th grade section.
When I am not teaching and talking about Math, I am home with my family in Downers Grove, my husband John and I have three children: two at DGN HS (Maeve is a Junior & Brendan is a Freshman), and my own 7th grader Mairead who attends Herrick Middle School. We also fell into the Covid puppy trap last year, and welcomed our puppy Scotia!
All Math classroom information can be found in your student's Google Classroom. Please ask them to take you on a tour. You will be able to find: the Weekly Agenda, Homework, Slideshows, and additional resources.
If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out to me via email or by calling the school.
