Courtney Taylor

Hey!! I am a native of Millry, Alabama. My husband and I have two precious little boys-Delton and Garrion. I enjoy spending time with my family and making sweet memories. 

After graduating from The University of West Alabama in 2008, I took my first teaching job at South Choctaw Academy teaching 4th and 5th grade Reading and Math while pursing a Master's in School Counseling. I then took a job in Mississippi teaching 3rd grade Reading. After I received my Master's my husband took a different coaching job that brought us back to Alabama, I took a year off from teaching and worked at The University of West Alabama as the Dual Enrollment Coordinator. I developed many high school agreements between the college to enhance the program. 


This is my 5th year here at Sweet Water as the Guidance Counselor. I am so thankful to to be a part of this school and build relationships with the kids of Sweet Water High School. Go Bulldogs!!!!!
