Mrs. Courtney Severance

Hello everyone! My name is Courtney Severance. This will be my 8th year working at West Clayton.  I am so excited to be working with your child this year! I graduated from East Carolina University (Go Pirates! Arrrrgggg) in 2012 and joined the West Clayton team right away. I am a former student of this school, and Clayton is very close to my heart.

My husband and I got married in 2011 right after he got out of the military. We have 3 fur babies (2 dogs and 1 cat) who definitely keep us on our toes on a daily basis! We also have a handsome little boy who just turned 5 this year! We are expecting a little girl due in October!

I enjoy watching movies with my husband in my spare time, spending time with my son, and visiting the mountains. I also love to bake and spend time with my family.   Here are some of my favorites:
