A Little About Me

Hello Everyone! My name is Courtney Cunningham Hieronymus, and I am 25 years old. I got married in March of 2011 to my precious husband Ward Hieronymus, and we have a sweet puppy named Dixie. I'm blessed with a precious family and wonderful friends. After graduating from Faith Academy, I began college at the University of Mobile. Unfortunately, school had to be put on a hold for a few years. I could not be more excited about the opportunity to get to go back to school, and I'm so happy to be at the University of South Alabama.

I love spending time with family and friends, and I love being outside, but my favorite thing to do is dance. I currently teach dance and gymnastics at Melinda Leigh Performing Arts Center. I adore my kids and I love getting to teach them what I love. I also volunteer at my church in our children's department. Working with children is my passion, and I cannot wait to get into the classroom to work with them full time.

Time Management Video

I really enjoyed Randy Pausch's video on time management. Time management and procrastination are both things that I have struggled with in the past and have been working very hard to correct. I really like when he states, "Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement." I have seen the trouble that procrastination can cause, and that experience has taught me to manage my time better. He gives some great tips for time management. My favorite is to tackle the "ugliest" thing first. I had not heard of Randy before, but I will definitely consider watching more of his videos.
