Principal's Message




Hello West Families!


My name is Courtney Harbuck and I am honored to be the  Principal at West Elementary & Early Childhood Academy.  It is going to be a great year working with all of you to make West the BEST school in the Universe!


I began my career student teaching at Liberty Elementary. I taught 1st grade, 2nd grade and 4th grade at Liberty Elementary, and was blessed to have the opportunity to be the Assistant Principal for 4 years at Liberty. In 2019, I was given the opportunity to become the Principal at West Elementary and have loved every minute of it!


I graduated from TCU in 2007 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Tarleton State University in 2012. 


One of my favorite quotes is “It takes a village to raise a child”. I whole heartedly believe that the success of our students is a shared responsibility between the school and home. At West, we are so excited to provide fun and engaging opportunities for ALL students to learn, as well having an open door for parents, grandparents and community members to be involved!


I am so excited to be a part of the amazing things we are going to accomplish this year at West! It’s going to be GREAT!


Courtney Harbuck
