Ms. Courtney Payne

Hi! My name is Courtney Payne. I am in my 8th year in Education. I am originally from north Alabama. I graduated from The University of Alabama with a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Physiology, and several years later from Jacksonville State University with a Master's degree in Sports Management. I worked professionally in Collegiate Strength and Conditioning, fitness, and as a Collegiate Women's basketball coach before getting into education as a high school teacher in 2013. I am in the Science Department at Thompson High School and I am an Assistant Coach in Track & Field. My interests outside of my professional career primarily center around fitness, family, and my faith.
