Mrs. Courtney Nivens

My name is Courtney Nivens. This will be my 10th year teaching Algebra and my 7th year in DISD. I am so excited to be making the move to the high school this year. I am from Alvord and went to school there kindergarten through 12th grade. My husband's name is Kendall and he is a firefighter/paramedic at Keller Fire Department. We have one little girl named Carlie. She was born in February 2020. I come from a very close family. My mom is the Secretary at Alvord Middle School and my dad is a retired captain from Keller Fire Department. I also have a little brother who teaches and coaches in Jacksboro.

I graduated from Tarleton State University with a degree in mathematics in May of 2012. I absolutely LOVE everything Tarleton. It was a wonderful school and I am thankful for all that I learned while attending. Ask me about it at any time. I love to share all the amazing traditions that make Tarleton great. GO TEXANS!

I am so glad to get to be a part of the Decatur Eagle family. I look forward to getting to know all of you and becoming a part of the community. Let's make this year GREAT!!
