At Scott Elementary, we invest in each other as a community to create a positive environment where we all reach our highest potential.
Janice Stahly Scott was a 22-year-old University of North Texas graduate when she arrived in Frisco to teach English at the town’s lone schoolhouse in 1963. At the time, less than 2,000 people lived in Frisco. She taught for 18 years in a variety of positions, including high school and middle school English teacher, middle school reading teacher and fourth and fifth grade classroom teacher. When Curtsinger Elementary opened in 1995, she became the library media specialist and held that role for 15 years.
One of her many gifts is how to make people feel needed and valued. Those skills even got the school 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, 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. She was committed to students and always 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. She retired with over 30 years of dedicated service in Frisco ISD.
