My name is Catherine Philley and I'll be teaching 2nd grade this year! I'm so proud to be part of such a wonderful team of educators, administrators, students and families.
I was born in Denton, Texas, but grew up in New Jersey. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master's Degree in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. I hold teaching certifications in both Texas and New Jersey, have my ESL supplemental certificate, am 30-hour GT trained, and am a certified remote learning educator.
I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades and have been a teacher's assistant and one-to-one aide in both general education classes and special education classes.
I enjoy cooking, listening to music, spending time with my family, and taking my dog to play at the park!
Looking forward to a great school year, with many more to come!
