Teacher of the Year

Congratulations Mrs. Busby!
Congratulations to Mrs. Courtney Busby, our 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year!



When I was a young child, I always dreamt of being a teacher or a librarian.  Every summer was spent setting up a classroom and a library in some room of our house or in the garage.  Once the room was set up, then the endless hours of playing school and library began!  For the past 18 years, I have had the privilege of making my dream a reality.  I get to wake up everyday and go to a job that I love at a school that I love.  I have spent the last 5 years as part of the wonderful staff at Chapel Hill High School. I love my job as a Special Education teacher and an adopted member of the English Department. Watching students blossom and grow in and out of the classroom is what keeps me going. As if my teaching job wasn’t rewarding enough, I decided to tackle the coaching world by becoming the assistant swim coach.  The swim team was very welcoming,and they taught me more than I could ever teach them about life and the sport. Living my dream wouldn’t be possible without the love and support from my family, friends, and colleagues. As Winston Churchill once stated, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal:  it is the COURAGE TO CONTINUE  that counts.”   Whether we are Digital Learning or back in a school building, I will have the courage to continue on with my dream job teaching my students so that they are able to achieve their dreams when they graduate from high school. My journey as Chapel Hill High School’s Teacher of the Year is just beginning, and I plan to represent us well
