The Crystal Apple Award recipient for Taylor Elementary is Courtney Corbin. Courtney has been at Taylor Elementary for five years as a fourth-grade teacher. Previous to teaching here, she taught one year at Santaquin Elementary, also in fourth-grade. She has served our school as a member of the D.A.R.T. team, fourth-grade team leader, and as our public relations representative. Because of her hard work, our school is in the newspaper and on-line frequently letting the community know of all the great things going on in all the classrooms.
Courtney lives in Santaquin with her family. She is married to Will, and has two adorable children, Addison and Jace. She has a laugh that makes others happy around her (and helps us locate her in the building.) If you don't know her, she is often spotted with a Dr. Pepper in her hand or at her desk and flip flops on year-round. If music is playing, you can bet she's dancing or is dancing in her head. She is the kind of teacher who is always willing to help another out. Mrs. Corbin is truly excited about education and has the ability to cultivate that excitement in her students by incorporating fun activities into her lessons. She possesses the unique skill to quickly build strong relationships with her students that endure. Before and after school, she can often be found surronded by students whom she previously taught. Courtney takes pride in being a teacher at Taylor Elementary and looks for ways to make it a positive environment for students and staff alike.
