To inspire and teach; to transform and reach. Investing in every student, every day!
Joyce Kelley Comstock went to college after her children started school and began her teaching career in Indiana with first graders. During that time, she became interested in working with special needs students in her church before programs were officially offered in public schools.
Later, she was an early pioneer of special education in Frisco ISD. A mentor and role model to many in the District, she made up the entire special education department at Frisco High School in the mid-80s. As a special education teacher, she was a fierce advocate for her students. She was beloved for her patience and willingness to be involved in the lives of her students. She and her husband would assist in obtaining prom dresses and tuxedos, escorting her special education students to the prom and standing in as dance partners for the evening.
She retired from FISD after 45 years in education and enjoyed a special bond with her former students, many of whom still visited her throughout the years. Even in retirement, she taught English as a Second Language to adult students in the evenings in Frisco ISD. She cherished this group of students and was proud to watch them learn and grow.
There is no shortage of stories from former colleagues and students who can give testaments regarding her heart for children and education. She is remembered for her enthusiasm and the care and compassion she brought to teaching. She passed away in 2021 at the age of 93.
