Physical education and health teacher Courtney Rabon enjoys the atmosphere at ECHS where she works with students and student-athletes.
Rabon lives in Nakina, with her husband Daniel Rabon and their two children, Rileigh and Raylon.
After graduating from South Columbus High School, she attended Peace College, earning her bachelor’s degree in childhood development.
Rabon later attended Ashford University where she received her bachelor’s degree in health and wellness.
Rabon is in her eighth year of teaching and her second year on the ECHS staff.
“My hopes are for East Columbus students to recognize all of the characteristics portrayed by the teachers and administrators each day at East Columbus,” Rabon said. “So, hopefully these characteristics will continue within each student here.”
Rabon’s interests and hobbies include working with her church and its youth, working with the Columbus and Brunswick parks and recreation programs, going to the gym and traveling.
After a realignment last year of teachers, Rabon was moved to ECHS. She has taught various subjects including migrant education and physical education. She also managed the Successmaker program at one of her schools.
Before ECHS, Rabon taught at Tabor City, Nakina and Hallsboro middle schools.
She said she is thankful for the opportunity to teach at ECHS and to get to know her peers and students.
She said she is excited to continue her career at ECHS and experience new things.
