Welcome to Mrs. Curtis' English Site!

    For the 2020-2021 school year, I will be using Microsoft Teams as my primary digital interface. The most current learning material can be found there.

     

    About Me

    Originally from Rochester, I attended Fairport High School and then set off for Swarthmore College (PA).  Having always been an Anglophile, I moved to England to teach, coach various sports (including some bizarre ones like netball and rounders!), and travel the world.  During the summers and while teaching in boarding schools, I earned my UK teaching certification from the University of Buckingham, LTCL certificate in violin performance, and MA from Teachers College, Columbia University.  You can probably imagine how frequently immigration officials hassled me about the irony of an American teaching English literature and language to English students!  After ten years there, I returned to Rochester in order to study at the University of Rochester where I also taught pre-college and undergraduate writing courses in the Kearns Center for Leadership and Diversity.  This year marks my fifth year teaching in Pittsford and my fourth year at Mendon High School.

     

    On a personal note, my husband and I have two energetic little boys named Will and Max.  I spent much time this past summer pushing around a double stroller, convincing tiny humans that eating Play-Doh is a bad idea, and attempting to memorize the names of dinosaurs who lived during the Cretaceous Period.
