Mrs. Rebecca Courtney

As a Berlin Brothersvalley graduate, I am so proud to work in a district that has given me so much.  Prior to returning to BBHS, I earned my bachelor's degree in English and Secondary Education from Point Park University, and I earned my master's degree in Advanced Teaching in Secondary Education from California University of Pennsylvania.  I love to learn, and I pride myself on trying out new ways of teaching in all of my classes. 

I currently teach English 9, English 11 College Prep, and Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition, where we work our way through a wide variety of literature and improve our reading and writing skills.  My goal is for each student to be able to think about, connect with, discuss, and write about literature and the world.

I currently live in Berlin with my husband and children.  I feel so blessed to live and work in such a great community!
