Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kortney Palmer
I have been an educator here at Laurel Park Elementary since we opened in 2008. I love teaching and it is my passion. I have been teaching for 12 years in NC; 9 years in 4th grade and 3 years in 5th grade. I am originally from New York state and graduated from Syracuse University in 2005 with my Bachelor's of Science; minor in Elementary Education. Since then, I acquired my Masters of Arts and Education in 2010.
I enjoy sunshine and sand. During my track outs, you can find me at the beach listening to the waves and "people watching" as I sit in my beach chair or splash around in the cool sea water.
I have a 13 year old beautiful rottweiler named Roxy. She is my precious 4-legged fur baby. I love her with all my heart. Soon, however, there will be another baby gaining my love...a human baby! My son, Aiden Cole, is expected to make his debut around December 7th. I am very excited!
