Mrs. Prentiss Kurtz

Hello all, my name is Prentiss Kurtz and I am a social studies teacher. I am originally from the great state of Maine and I, like many others here, moved to the Jacksonville area with my husband who is in the Marine Corps and have been in the area off and on since 2017.  I graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a BA in political science. While teaching wasn't my original plan after graduating college, I have always had a passion for learning, and have a deep interest in anything related to the United States government. Throughout my high school years, I was particularly close with my own social studies teachers, and I would like to inspire my own students in the way that my teachers empowered me.  

This year I am teaching Economics and Personal Finance and the AVID History Elective for seniors. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me. I am looking forward to a great school year.
