Teacher Appreciation Week Spotlight - Courtney Halfacre

Courtney Halfacre, Stone Memorial HS, Crossville, TN

In honor of teacher appreciation week, we are highlighting some of our favorite teacher spotlight interviews and spotlighting some new ones as well.

Courtney Halfacre’s high school agriculture teacher inspired her to pursue teaching because of his love and passion for FFA and for teaching students. She loves teaching agriculture because every day is different. “It’s not a regular nine to five job. We walk in the classroom, we never know exactly what we’re going to walk into,” says Halfacre.

Courtney believes Career and Technical Education is important because it provides the skills necessary for students to enter the workforce. “CTE is giving those students the resources and tools they need to be successful."

Thank you, Courtney, for your service to the students at Stone Memorial High School.
