    Welcome to Curtis Middle School!!  I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful educational environment!   This year I will be teaching one 7th grade English Strategies and spending the rest of the day in inclusion.  A few notes about myself, this is my 21th year teaching in Allen.  I taught special education and kindergarten at Reed Elementary before coming to Curtis.  I absolutely love being a Curtis Cougar!!!!
    I'm the proud mother of four great kids, Kyle and his wife, Marci, and sons, Breckin (7) and Briggs (4),  Dewain and his wife, Anna, and their handsome son, Weston (4) and our first grand daughter Everly (1)! Clark, is 26, went through Curtis and graduated from AHS in 2010 and is attending Mid-Western State University, majoring in Accounting. And finally our baby,  Natalie, she is attending UNT majoring in Education. She also was a Curtis Cougar. My husband, Danny, and I have been married for 28 years (this December) I call him my computer nerd, he works for HP now DX. :-) 
    My hobbies are gardening, quilting and sewing baby clothes and burprags, hats and shoes.  And spending time with my grandbabies and family.
    I am a proud graduate of Oklahoma State University. GO POKES!!!
    I'm looking  forward to terrific year!!!
