  • My name is Courtney Townsend. I graduated from Indiana State University in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Studies Education. I took my first teaching job here at North Clay Middle School, teaching 8th grade Social Studies, in January of 2013. 


    I have a great passion for history, and love to pass that down to my students. I try and make learning about history fun and exciting, and hope to teach my students the connections between past and present events. I also try and connect those events to real life occurences. I want my students to be able to succeed at the next level, and take this information on with them into their futures. 


    I was born and raised on a farm in Southern Clay County, and still currently reside in Southern Clay County. I have been married to my husband Stetson since 2014, and in July of 2018 we welcomed our son Maverick to our family. My family and I are still involved in farming and livestock, and in my spare time I enjoy barrel racing, going to truck pulls, sports, a variety of outdoor activities, and shopping.
