Miss Beth Kursey

Welcome!  I am Beth Kursey, Harmony Middle School's reading specialist.  In addition to being a licensed reading specialist, I am also certified to teach prek-6 and English 6-8.  I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Shepherd (College) University with a major in sociology and minor in psychology, an elementary teaching certificate from Wilson College, and a Master of Arts in Reading Education from West Virginia University.  I taught elementary for seven years prior to becoming a middle school reading specialist.  When not at school, I enjoy being outdoors, relaxing with friends and family, and reading a good book.  

Please understand that I am actively working with students during the day, so I may not be able to respond to email immediately.  I will, however, respond within 36 hours.  If you have a time sensitive message, please call the school at (540)751-2500 and a secretary will make sure I get your message.  My email address is:
