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.

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