Olivia "Annie" Gurski

My name is Olivia "Annie" Gurski.  I graduated from the University of North Texas with a B.A. in General Studies and M.Ed in Special Education with a focus in Autism Intervention. This is my 23rd year in education, 12th year teaching,  5th year at Clark HS. Previously, I taught at Wylie ISD in special education structured classrooms at the high school and middle school levels. 

I am in my sweet spot here at Clark, English 1 and Academic Literacy (Resource)! My passion is to inspire my students to grow find joy in reading and writing, no matter where they are at.  

On a personal note, I live right here in Plano with my wonderful husband and 3 pups.  My two daughters both graduated from Plano East and went on to higher education. In my free time, I enjoy indoor and outdoor gardening and bicycling!
