    Welcome to Curtis Middle School!!  I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful educational environment!   This year I will be teaching three 7th grade English Strategies classes  .  A few notes about myself, this is my 24th 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 (10) and Briggs (7), and twins, Colbie and Kyson (2), Dewain and his wife, Anna, and their handsome son, Weston (7) and our first grand daughter Everly (3)! Clark, is 29, went through Curtis and graduated from AHS in 2010 and graduated from  Mid-Western State University, majoring in Accounting. And finally our baby,  Natalie, is a 1st year kindergarten teacher at McSpedden in Frisco. She also was a Curtis Cougar. My husband, Danny, and I have been married for 31 years (this December) I call him my computer nerd, he works for DXM. :-) 
    My hobbies are gardening, making wreaths,  quilting and sewing baby clothes, 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!!!
