Welcome Viking family to the 2019-2020 school year! I am excited to welcome you to my class. My name is Courtney Deaton and I am the Cross Categorical Resource (CCR) Teacher for 6th and 7th grade. This is my second year at Highland Middle School. I am also the cheerleading coach.
I graduated from Campbell University with a degree in Special Education. Go Camels! I am married to my wonderful husband and we have a fur baby named Max.
In my class, students are taught Language!, a comprehensive program directly teaching phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and writing. The emphasis of the program is on explicit teaching of skills, with the teacher modeling through self-talk, guiding the students through the tasks, and finally if they are ready, allowing the students to practice the skill independently.
