Courtney Galbreath is a kindergarten teacher at Texas School of The Arts in Edgecliff, Texas. She is also the first winner of our law firm’s Teacher Of The Month award through our Teacher Appreciation Program!
Read what the parents had to say about Mrs. Galbreath:
"This teacher deserves to win for so many reasons! From taking in teaching our little five-year-old to also training the parent of this five-year-old. She updates through Facebook, text message, and email. Anything she can to do to make sure we know what’s going on. She goes above and beyond every time. She’s never off call even at 2 AM! We simply love her to pieces. (I’m currently a first grade mom and still she is the best)"
"Mrs. Galbreath makes all of her students feel safe and loved while pushing them to do the best they can. My daughter cried everyday last year going to pre- k. This year she can’t wait to get to school to see Mrs. Galbreath."
From Selling Homes To Selling Dreams
Mrs. Galbreath received her bachelors degree at The University of North Texas. She then went to Lamar University and obtained her masters in educations and administration.
Mrs. Galbreath’s story is very interesting as she used to sell homes but now sells dreams. As a successful real estate agent, she was hit with a big revelation witnessing the impact her husband’s family had on the children of Joshua Independent School District as educators. That's when she knew she wanted to be part of something greater and said goodbye to the houses and hello to the classrooms.
Mrs. Gablreath dived right into her new found love and immediately made an impact at Alvarado Independent School District. She worked in the preschool program for children with disabilities with children who were three to five years old. Mrs. Galbreath poured her love and passion in them and started shaping the minds of her wonderful clan. Mrs. Galbreath credits the children there for shaping her and making her a better teacher. They changed her way of thinking by allowing her to see that no matter the disability these kids were amazing and did much more than others would expect.
Mrs. Galbreath taught with such a love, joy and passion that it brought out the absolute best of the kids - and the parents noticed it!
