Coach Chris Courtney:
I attended TCU, graduated from UTA and have taught 6th grade social studies and coached girls basketball, volleyball and track in Birdville ISD. I also have experience in coaching youth sports, Boy Scout leadership, and youth ministry. My interests include history, political science, TCU football, playing guitar, bicycling, playing pickleball with my grandkids and chauffering my wife around Colorado with our travel trailer. I am looking forward to meeting my ISMS team members!
Hello my name is Devon Wolfe! I graduated from Texas Woman's University and majored in English. I'm married with two little boys! This is my second year of teaching, I've coached 5 seasons of basketball and many years of being around athletics. I'm excited to join the Indian Springs family . . . Go Eagles!
Coach Andrea Taylor
An East Texas native, I grew up with a large family of educators. I attended the University of North Texas and graduated from Texas Women's University. I am joining the team with 6 years of classroom experience and 10+ years of coaching experience in multiple sports in the private sector. My husband (Kevin) and I have 3 children. As a former athlete, I understand the balance of classroom and competition. I teach/coach because I am passionate about helping students discover their own path and goals in life. I am excited about joining the Indian Springs family and look forward to a great first year.
