Ms. Kirk

Hello!  I am glad you have chosen T.C. Marsh as your resource for middle school education.  You have made a great decision.  I am here to help you thrive in this environment both in your educational and social aspects.  A little bit about me...I graduated from UT Arlington, then completed a Master's degree at Our Lady of the Lake in San Antonio.  I taught math for 14 years.  When I decided I wanted to be an educational guidance counselor, I went to Angelo State University and got a Master's degree in Counseling.  I have been married to an amazing man, Jeff, for 26 years.  We have 3 daughters who we are very proud of.  All 3 are athletes and their abilities provided full athletic/academic scholarships to college.  Our oldest, Devon (volleyball), graduated from TCU with a degree in Nutrition.  She lives in Houston with her husband and 2 great little ones.  Kayla (volleyball) graduated from Duke and pursued her graduate degree in law at UT.  She lives in England and practices law there.  The youngest, Payton, (track and field) attends Abilene Christian University and is majoring in biomedical engineering.  One of the highlights of my day is coming home to our dog Stella Roo.  She's pretty cool and loves to swim.  When I have free time, I love to read mysteries, cook, bike ride, and binge watch Netflix.  I hope you have an amazing year and know that I am here for you.  Here's to the class of 2025!
