Courtney Sides

Speech Teacher

Courtney Sides Bio

My name is Courtney Sides and I am a Speech Language Pathologist at Reuben Johnson Elementary. I grew up in Whitesboro, Texas, a small town not too far from McKinney. I earned my Bachelors degree with a major in speech and hearing sciences at the University of North Texas. I worked as an SLP assistant for 9 years before earning my Masters degree in speech language pathology at Texas Woman’s University. My husband and I have an 8 year old son who will going into the third grade this year. We enjoy spending time as a family playing games, watching movies, kayaking, hiking, traveling, and just being together. I have known since I was a senior in high school that I wanted to be a speech therapist and love helping others succeed! It truly makes my heart happy to help others and see them happy! I am beyond honored and blessed to be able to share my love for the field of speech pathology with my new Jaguar family!

A career in speech pathology challenges you to use the talents of your mind in combination with the gifts in your heart to do meaningful work that feeds your soul. I am proud to be a member of what I consider to be one of the best professions on Earth. Go Jaguars!
