Mrs. Courtney Mize


I grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I fell in love with the beach and decided to make it my home.  After moving here, I fell in love with my husband, Benjamin.  We married in November 2014 right here in Swansboro!  We have five fur-babies, Winnie, Brownie, Johnny (dogs), and Alena and Spartacus (cats).  I love going to the beach, painting, and reading.  This is my first year teaching at Morton Elementary and Mrs. Whiteman and I are so excited to start the school year off great!

Ms. Cari Whiteman

Assistant Teacher

I grew up in Farrell, Pennsylvania.  I earned my associates in Education from Coastal Carolina Community College in 2010 and continue to go Ashford University where I am seeking a degree in Early Childhood Education with a specialization in special needs. I have 3 wonderful children named Vincent (18), Nicholas (16), and Christian (12).  Our other furry children are 3 Golden Retrievers: Big Ben, Little Lily, and Wild Wiskey.  This is also my first year teaching at Morton Elementary.  Mrs. Mize and I will expand your child’s education over the year!
