Courtney Clark

Blended Learning Coach

I am a Raleigh native and a graduate of UNC (Elementary Education) and NCSU (Instructional Technology).  My husband and I are parents to 4 daughters, two dogs, two cats and a constant rotation of foster animals.  I've taught on an off in Wake County for almost 20 years and am happy to have spent a few of them, including the last few, at Combs.  All of my daughters have attended Combs and I know personally what a difference Leadership and the Habits can make in a child's life.  My goal as a Blended Learning coach is to facilitate online learning in a way that supports the classroom experience while providing a personalized path to academic success.

Intervention Specialist

My name is Jennifer Cline and I have been a part of the Combs family since 2004.  I graduated from NC State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I hold a K-6 teaching license from Meredith College and a Master’s Degree in Reading Education from NC State.   As you can tell, reading is my passion and instilling a love for literacy in children is my mission here at Combs.  In my spare time I enjoy running, yoga, spending time with my husband and 2 daughters, and curling up with a good book.

Katie Trueman

Guidance Counselor

My name is Katie Trueman and for as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a school counselor! I graduated from Marshall University (Huntington, WV) with a B.A. in Psychology. Then I pursued my dream to continue my education and received a M.A. in School Counseling. I began working at AB Combs in 2005. I think it's pretty great to be at a school that embeds Leadership, Character Education & The Habits into everything! I acquired my National Boards of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) for School Counseling in 2010. I feel honored (and blushing a bit) to be named the 2014 School Counselor of the Year for Wake County Public Schools! When I’m not working with children, I love being outdoors with my husband & two cute kids, experimenting with new recipes and exploring NC with my sweet family & friends.

Sam Woodrum

Guidance Counselor

Hi, I’m Sam Woodrum, and I truly love being a school counselor at A. B. Combs, where my biggest job is to “seek first to understand, then to be understood.”  I grew up in Angier, NC but Raleigh has been my home since 2010.  I received a BA degree from Gardner-Webb University and a Masters of Education in School Counseling from UNC-Chapel Hill.  I love to spend time with my wife: playing board games, eating good food, traveling, camping, and playing with any combination of our four nephews, three nieces, and two cats.  Besides friends and family, some of my favorite things are surfing, mountain biking, music, and storytelling.
