Favorite thing about Curtis: My favorite thing about teaching at Curtis are working with both students and staff. I have the privilege to teach and support a very special group of students every year who teaches me the importance of resilience. Excitedly, I get to teach them to strive above and beyond what they know, to what is possible through better decision making, and to do this service in collaboration with a unique and caring staff everyday is remarkable! The Curtis staff, over the years, have always demonstrated an abundance of care and concern for all students, which is a wonderful trademark to Curtis.
