Subjects Taught
First Grade


In 2007, I graduated from Soddy Daisy

High School. Go Trojans! I then attended

UTC seeking out a degree in graphic design

before transferring to Chattanooga State

to gain my Associates in Teaching Degree. I

continued my education and graduated

with my Bachelors Degree at Tennessee

Tech University in 2012. This allows me to

teach Kindergarten-8th grade.



This is my 5th year teaching. All 5 years have been at NHCE in 1st grade!


Hi, my name is Courtney Dent. I was born and raised in Soddy

Daisy, just a few miles from NHCE. I have 2 amazing parents,

Mike and Suzanne, and 1 younger brother, Taylor. I just 

recently bought my own home and share it with my fur baby,

Brinkley. My Bea keeps me on my toes and is my pride and joy!

We enjoy still living close to family and particularly love sitting

out on our screened porch. When I am not teaching, I enjoy

participating in activities at my church, spending time with

family and friends, crafting, and playing board games.
