Ms. Courtney Payne
Hi! My name is Courtney Payne. I am beginning my 5th year in Education. I am originally from north Alabama. I graduated from The University of Alabama with a Bachelor's degree in Education, 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 will be an Assistant Coach with the Girls Basketball and Track and Field teams this year. My interests outside of my professional career primarily center around fitness.
