Ms. Stanton

I have been an educator for 30 years. After seven years in Colorado as a secondary math and language arts teacher, as well as the coordinator of an advanced learning program, I moved to Texas and opened Rice Middle School where I focused on gifted education and language arts. Since Rice, I have taught on-level, honors, and International Honors English at the high school level and was the Plano ISD 2014 Secondary Teacher of the Year. Although I worked at the district level as a curriculum specialist and instructional coach for the past two years, my heart is in the classroom, and I am thrilled to be back on a campus.

 Although I consider myself a Coloradoan with degrees from both Colorado State University and The University of Colorado, I grew up all over the world because my father was a special agent in the Air Force. Because of my experiences as a "military brat," I have a strong appreciation for internationalism and the importance of being open-minded, principled, and compassionate.   

 I live in Allen with my husband Mike who teaches at Jasper High School, my teen daughters (and IB students) Karter and Jillian, my unruly dogs, and three adorable rats.  When I am not at work, I can be found in my car (with a carpool of talkative theater/orchestra/volleyball/Girl Scout girls), on a walk with my pets and a reluctant family member, enjoying a meal with friends and family, or volunteering at the Allen Animal Shelter. In addition to the aforementioned interests, I am an avid reader, an enthusiastic fantasy football team owner, and an eager shelter-dog "realtor." 

 I am thrilled to be a Plano East panther and am looking forward to a fantastic year.
