Mr. Curtis

Sean Curtis was born and raised in Springville and his family has farmed here since it was settled in the 1800s.  In fact, the original settler Enos Curtis is buried in the cemetery just a few blocks from the ALC.

Mr. Curtis now lives in Spanish Fork with his wife Andrea, two sons, Haden and Robby, and baby daughter, Emery.  He and his wife have been married for 9 years. When not at the ALC, you will find Mr. Curtis playing with his kids.  He says, “I like to get them out to fish, camp, play in the snow, and just get away from the pressures for some fun.”

Mr. Curtis has a BS in Biology (pre-med) from UVU and an MS of Human Resource Management/Development from Utah State University. Mr. Curtis is our Pre-Med/Health Sciences teacher and has been here at ALC since its beginning, the fall of 2012. Mr. Curtis has received the following awards: 2012-2013 ALC Teacher of the Year Award, 2011-2012 UACTE Outstanding New Teacher, and 2011 Utah HOSA Outstanding Service Award.

Mr. Curtis remarked, “I love to see my students succeed and find a love for learning about the human body.  The human machine is a miracle!  There are so many amazing concepts to learn yet there is so much more to discover.  It is exciting to see my students move on to other endeavors.  Many of my students move into medical programs and learn to serve their fellowman as they care for patients in need.”

Mr. Curtis’s favorite part about ALC is the students who come to learn and make the most of their experience.  He says, “Students that come to excel are the ones that make a difference in the world.” And how right he is. In fact, Mr. Curtis is the one making a difference in the world right here at ALC and how lucky we are to have him.
