Hi! My name is Courtney Rankin and I am the librarian at Oakland Elementary. Before coming to Oakland, I taught 5th grade for 5 years at Pecan Grove Elementary and 6th grade math in Waco, Texas while my husband attended Baylor, Sic ‘em Bears!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to read! I usually read about 50 books a year! My favorite authors include Dr. Seuss, Henry Winkler, Margaret Peterson Haddix, Laura Joffe Numeroff, Janet Evanovich, Collen Hoover, Abbi Glines, Jamie McGuire, and James Patterson. This year my goal is to read all 100 books on the Great American Read list on PBS. In my free time I like to shop, read, go out to eat, and spend time with my husband and precious daughter, Payton.
