Mr. Michael Courson
I have been a resident of Lee County since 2009. I came to Auburn University in the Summer of 2010 to pursue a degree in Special Education. As an educator, I completed four years as a special education teacher at West Smiths Station and I will begin my fifth year at Beulah Elementary. My wife, Suzanne, and I live in Opelika.
I try to incorporate innovative and engaging strategies that provide students with hands-on learning. I believe social skills should be incorporated into every part of the day and traits such as respect, honesty, and work ethic will be just as beneficial to students as the curriculum they are taught. Teaching with passion can ignite learning and ambition into the mind of every student.
