Hi! My name is Courtney Gilbert, and I am the Library Media Specialist here at Oakview. I was born in Ashland, Kentucky where I grew up and attended Hager Elementary School, Verity Middle School, and Paul G. Blazer High School. I received my Bachelor’s and Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Morehead State University and my Rank 1 in Library Media Science from EKU. In May 2012, I married my high school sweetheart Tyler. I also have a step-son, Griffin, who is in seventh grade this year. When I’m not at school teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, reading, and crafting.
This is my thirteenth year of teaching and my first year as the librarian. I have previously taught second grade and kindergarten here at Oakview. I am so excited to make the transition into the library! I have lots of amazing ideas and plans for the library! Stop by and see me. I look forward to working with you and your child to achieve the highest possible results in their learning experience. If you wish to talk with me, feel free to call or e-mail for an appointment.
