Janice Stahly Scott came to Frisco in the sixties after graduating from UNT. She taught for 18 years (high school and middle school English teacher, middle school reading teacher, and 4th and 5th grade classroom teacher) and then became the library media specialist at Curtsinger Elementary when it opened in 1995. She retired with over 30 years of dedicated service in Frisco ISD. One of her many gifts is how she can make people feel needed and valued. Those skills even got the current board president volunteering in the Curtsinger library and becoming the book fair chair – all because she made her feel appreciated and welcomed as a new mom in Frisco. In fact, it was such a joy that she kept volunteering after her children moved on to middle school!! Janice had a saying on her desk that read, “Children may not remember what you say, but they will always remember how you make them feel.” Not only did she apply that to the children she taught, but also to the adults with whom she came into contact on a daily basis. Ms. Scott was committed to students and went the extra mile. She was loved and respected by all who knew and worked with her and impacted thousands of lives for the better during her time in FISD.
